The color has sprung to life in the Merrimack Region but there is still plenty of color to be exposed as the nights get cooler and the days remain warm. This weekend is a perfect example of the right ingredients to bring out the color we enjoy in autumn. Some areas have even dropped leaves, so it's a total mix of green and the rest of the autumn color spectrum as we wait for it to truly dazzle. Still, there is fun to be had and a season to celebrate so we would recommend a trip to the Milford Pumpkin Festival. Take Route 101 West to Route 101A into downtown Milford. You can't miss it!
