More fall fun: things to do in the South Hills this weekend

We’ve told you about places to go to celebrate fall as well as a few places to get decent scares, but we’re not done yet. As long as the season continues, a gorgeous one thanks to the area’s changing foliage, we’ll dig up new things to do this Autumn in Pittsburgh.

Pumpkin Patch Parade in Mt. Lebanon

Pittsburgh in Autumn
In addition to enjoying the gorgeous fall foliage, there are plenty of autumn activities to keep Pittsburgh residents busy throughout the season.

If your kids love Halloween, consider taking them to the Pumpkin Patch Parade this Saturday in Mt. Lebanon. The parade will take place no matter the weather and will start at 11 a.m. from the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery and head down Washington Road all the way to Lebanon Avenue. Kids (accompanied by parents) may join the parade after The Great Pumpkin passes. After the parade, local businesses with special orange signs will open their doors to trick-or-treaters.

Oktoberfest Menu at Atria’s

Can’t get enough German cuisine? Atria’s in Mt. Lebanon—the original Atria’s, by the way—is still serving Oktoberfest fare. You can be sure that the official caterer of The National Aviary serves good food. Chi Quach, assistant property manager of Alvern Gardens Apartments, recommends the pork shank, a true classic and perfectly hearty for a chilly fall day. He adds that the Mt. Lebanon location is the only one that serves free chips. While you’re in the swing of fall, consider booking a Thanksgiving reservation, they’re accepting them now.
