In the northern hemisphere where Columbus Georgia resides; the season of fall begins with the autumnal equinox, which falls on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2015. When you feel that first crisp breeze, you know it means the beginning of cooler temperatures and that school is back in session.
However, fall comes a little later in Columbus and the surrounding areas. Growing up here, our first cool spell usually happened when the Greater Chattahoochee Fair arrived in town which occurred somewhere around October 10th. The Fair was the first time you could wear your sweaters (at night only) and not be hot. It was an exciting time, and you always went more than once. Some of us traveled home from college for an “Exchange Club foot long”.
Football is a big event in the South and we can’t wait for SEC football! As with many towns in this part of the country, it is always very controversial in Columbus about who has the best team. I love Friday nights when lights are on in our local stadiums for high school football. I love to hear the bands practicing in the afternoons. We are serious about our football! A SEC college tailgate is an experience and needs to be on everyone’s bucket list.
Each and every season has its upside, but fall is my favorite! Things seem to pick up a bit from the slower pace of summer and accelerate as we move through the holidays. There are so many things to do during this season, especially in Uptown Columbus. The Friday night concerts are fun and free! There are so many events going on that it is hard to keep up.
