Happy ALMOST fall, y'all!  I know you've waited long enough for all your pumpkin-themed festivities to begin.

September 22nd is when fall officially starts, so don't get too excited just yet!  Yes, a bunch of Apple orchards have already opened their barn doors to the public, but it doesn't stop there!  Chicago has one of the largest fall festivals opening very soon and I guarantee you've been waiting for them to announce their Grand Opening date.

Jack's Pumpkin Pop-up just announced they're set to open September 22nd!

I talked about Jack's earlier this year because they hosted a western themed pop-up, but they're back with pumpkin spice and everything nice.

Get your flannels ready because you don't want to miss this!

"Jack’s Pumpkin Pop-up is home to dozens of interactive games, props and photo ops – all great for making lifelong memories with friends!" - Jack's

I know you want to fill your Instagram feed with everything fall-themed.  Jack's has the perfect photo opportunities to do that - all in one place!

There will be an incredible amount of attractions to choose from, too. Get your fortune read with a Fortune Teller if you're brave enough!

Maybe you're more into sports?  Jack's will have some axe throwing venues for everything in your group to try out!

You can get competitive with friends and see who can get a bullseye first.  It's actually really fun, I've been axe throwing one too many times.

Jack's also has the LARGEST corn maze around.  If you've been holding off on corn mazes the past few years, this is the time to try it!

"We have 2 acres of land allowing plenty of space to build an awesome corn maze right in the city’s backyard!" - Jack's


If you're looking for a little bit of liquid courage to kick of your night, Jack's has multiple bars to stop at and grab a few drinks with friends.

"We have multiple bars stocked with endless options for your night out on the town, including beer, spirits, mixers, seltzers and more." - Jack's


There's soooo much to do at this pumpkin festival that you'll want to take a second and take in all the fall vibes.  With over 10,000 pumpkins around you, you're bound to take one home, right?!

To end your night, you can grab some cider donuts to fill your belly!  I've heard nothing but great things about these donuts.  If you're really interested in going to Jack's this fall, check out their website for all they have going on!
