  • Community Activities OLD-FALL
Fergus County has so many great things to do that using alcohol and drugs doesn't make sense!
Looking for fun Fall activities? Here is a list to help you enjoy the season and create lasting memories:

1. Fall Drives

The changing colors in the fall make a Sunday drive something extra special.

2. Night Sky Viewing

Fall is one of the best times for night skygazing because the sun sets earlier, and the Milky Way is in full view in our northern hemisphere.

3. Fishing Fun

If you’re looking to get your line in the water before the cold weather hits, then check out one of the many rivers and ponds available for fishing.

4. Hiking

Hiking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while getting some exercise. Be sure to carry along a backpack with the following: sunscreen, water, bug repellent, snacks, first aid kit with bandaids, extra socks, raincoat, ziplock bags, wet wipes, and bear spray (where applicable).

5. Hit the Hot Springs

Soaking in the hot mineral water pools not only feels wonderful but also has many health benefits.

6. Fall Bike Tour

Get a group together for an exhilarating time on two wheels as the weather cools down and leaves begin to change and fall from the trees. Fall beauty, fresh air, a little exercise and good company.


The chill in the air, the excitement of the game, the fans cheering on their favorite team, eating popcorn and drinking cocoa. Be sure to take along a blanket for the cold bleachers!


Nothing beats roasting marshmallows or making s’mores by the fire on a cool night wrapped in a blanket!


Check your local paper and social media for an assortment of fun events for the entire family!


Gather round with a bowl of popcorn, lots of pillows and blankets, select your favorite family movie or take in a movie at a local theater for great surround-sound and theater popcorn!


When it’s chilly outside, it’s always a fun time to share a pizza and see how many pins you can knock down – and how many times you or a friend/family member tosses a “gutter ball”!


There are sure to be lots of community service opportunities and ways to help out friends and neighbors – raking leaves, packing away lawn furniture, garden tools and summer décor.
