This week’s assignment from the League was to write about your Halloween traditions. Around here, the Halloween season doesn’t begin until the gates to Cox Farms’ Fall Festival open.
Cox Farms is just a couple of miles from us, and is one of the last remaining vestiges of rural life for miles around. Suburban sprawl has surrounded it on all sides, but we are fortunate that the Cox family has continued with their annual festivals. Amid all the hustle and bustle of the DC suburbs, a visit to Cox Farms takes you back to a simpler time.
We’ve been going to Cox Farms for over two decades, and rather than writing about it, this week I thought I would post a pictorial about some of the festive sites.
You know it’s a good day when you end it with a King Kong sighting.
