We here at Global Yodel asked our contributors to share with us photos and stories from festivals in their hometowns. We wanted to see cities come alive with visitors, lights and costumes.
As soon as the air turns crisp, we can hardly wait to pull on a sweater and celebrate the new season at an outdoor festival. The country's biggest Oktoberfest and the 48th annual National Apple Harvest Festival were shoo-ins for this roundup of 10 fall festivals. But we also tracked down some quirkier fests worth the trip, including one where 1,500 sheep parade down a Sun Valley main street.
