Summer has officially come and gone, but luckily, fall isn’t too shabby here in Jupiter.
Harbourside is welcoming the new season with a variety of fall-themed events, including costume contests (for kids and dogs), pumpkin patches, Halloween festivities and more.
Residents should also get ready for the return of the farmers market, which will kick off Oct. 25 and run through April. More than 50 vendors will be selling fresh vegetables like sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, squash and more, as well as smoothies, handcrafted cheese, jams and coffee.
