Two of the biggest weekends in the Door County fall tourism season are on tap this month with area businesses feeling the enthusiasm as well. Egg Harbor’s Pumpkin Patch Festival kicks off this weekend and Sister Bay Fall Festival follows suit October 12th, 13th, and 14th. Wood Orchard Market partner Crista Kochanski says these two weekends are a big reason why October is their biggest month.
According to the Door County Tourism Zone, over $598,000 was collected last October, ranking it the fourth highest total in 2017. Room tax collection is just one indicator of the county’s tourism numbers.
