Five things not to miss in Provo this fall


It’s another Monday at BYU, and everybody’s talking about the weekend event you didn’t go to. Concerts, scavenger hunts and sporting events all came and went, and you sat at your house eating cereal and watching TV.

As happening as the summer and early fall in Provo have been, it’s not too late to take part in the things everyone will be talking about next Monday. Get off your couch. Put the cereal down. Take advantage of Provo’s fall scene.

1. The last Rooftop Concert of the season. The Rooftop Concert Series will celebrate its five-year anniversary Oct. 3 with a special show featuring Neon Trees, Fictionist and the Blue Aces. For those unfamiliar with the Rooftop Concert Series, the concerts take place on top of a parking garage in downtown Provo and feature local musical talent.

2. Sundance scenic lift rides. Through Oct. 12, Sundance offers ski lift rides on weekdays from noon to 5 p.m. The rides provide fresh mountain air and beautiful vistas of fall’s changing colors. The last full-moon nighttime lift rides of the season will be held the evenings of Oct. 9-11.

3. BYU sporting events. Rise and shout. Students can purchase discounted ROC passes for admission to BYU sporting events and cheer on the Cougars. BYU participates in eight different sports in the fall.

4. Haunted Halloween venues. Haunted hayrides, train rides, forests and houses induce screams throughout the Utah and Salt Lake Valleys in the fall. Venues range in scare levels from “sort of spooky” to “totally terrifying.”

5. Farmers markets. Fruits and vegetables, baked goods, crafts and more are on display at farmers markets throughout Utah Valley in the fall. BYU’s farmers market takes place in the south parking lot of Lavell Edwards Stadium Thursdays from 3 to 7 p.m. through Oct. 30.
