Things to do in Utah County this Fall

September 10, 2021

Fall is a special time of year as the leaves change color, the air becomes cool and crisp and the Halloween fun begins. As a new homeowner in a McArthur Homes community, you can look forward to experiencing what your area has to offer for seasonal and spooky fun.

Nothing sets the tone for Halloween-themed fun like light displays, corn mazes, colorful costumes, pumpkin displays, obstacle courses and fairground festivities. This year, you and your family can anticipate a fall season of family-friendly adventures that are just a short way from your new home.

Find Local Corn Mazes in Utah County

If you love corn mazes, Utah County has an unusual variety that is sure to thrill fans of all ages. Check out these local favorites combined with a host of fall activities:

  • Voted one of America’s top 10 corn mazes, Cornbelly’s fall adventure destination includes an array of attractions ranging from barnyard games, fun house adventures, elevated thrills, carnival rides, games of skill and much more. You can scale the climbing wall, take a hayride, test your paintball aim, ride the mini train and end your visit having a snack by the cozy, evening bonfire.
  • The Crazy Corn Maze is a regional favorite that features large and small corn mazes spread out across eight acres of twists, turns, dead ends and pathways out. The property also features Fright Lights — an elaborate night time display of sparkling color and lit-up design that turn a giant pumpkin patch into a spectacle of glimmering wonder. Another on-site thrill is Nightstalkers — a haunted trail of costumed creatures and creepy characters.
  • Glen Ray’s Corn Maze, another local fall favorite is perfect if you love wandering through a giant pumpkin patch and trekking through corn-lined pathways. A seven-and-a-half-acre plot contains three different mazes neighbored by a two-acre patch of pumpkins ranging in various colors and sizes. Plus, youngsters will love the Kiddie Corral — a barnyard playtime area of hay bales and fuzzy four-legged friends.

Fall Fairs in Utah County

Known by locals as a festive agricultural hotspot, Wilkerson Farm has plenty of locally-grown produce to stock your new kitchen while experiencing an exhilarating afternoon at the Fall Fair. This annual event features festive rides, a variety of corn mazes, a petting zoo for the kids, antique farm equipment displays and backdrops that are perfect for seasonal family photos.

Halloween Goes Tech

Haunted Halloween Haven is a unique and captivating attraction of projected images, spooky sounds and special effects. This family-friendly Halloween destination just a short drive from McArthur’s communities, delivers thrills for all ages. Visitors can enjoy an evening of glowing ghostly figures, wisps of fog, moving statues and animated displays — all created and controlled with state-of-the-art digital technology.

A Spooky Water Adventure in Utah County

Discover a unique twist on the season’s fun at the Halloween Cruise at CLAS in nearby Provo.

An evening drift down the jack-o-lantern lined Provo River is a great way to celebrate the fall season. This group-friendly cruise is led by a costumed captain with a scary story to tell and you may run into local pirates looking to give guests a friendly thrill. The cruises run the entire month of October and are perfect for family outings and company team building excursions.
