Celebrate the season with a step back in time during a visit to one of Rhode Island’s unique, historic places this year. More than a dozen participants in the Rhody Ramble, a family adventure to explore Rhode Island, are hosting holiday programs and seasonal tours during December. Families can visit handsomely decorated mansions, enjoy music concerts, meet Santa Claus or even do Christmas eve chores on the farm. A cartoon rooster named Rhody the Rambler serves as the program’s ambassador.
We love carving up pumpkins and seeing them aglow on Halloween Night. But by the next day, we are quick to pack up the decorations, trying to manage candy overload and ready to discard the decaying pumpkins.
Thanks to ecoRI and Whole Foods Market, we can give our used pumpkins new life. Bring your pumpkins to both Whole Foods Market stores — 601 North Main St. (University Heights) and 261 Waterman St. — on Friday, Nov. 2, from 3-6 pm. ecoRI Public Works staff members will be collecting the used pumpkins and using them to make compost.
Now that it’s fall, our family welcomes the change of season and we look forward to carrying on traditions that celebrate autumn, the natural colors and the holidays including trips to favorite spots, foods made from local harvests, and activities rooted in fall.
