Add to this the fact that tickets for movie theaters are more expensive than ever, and it makes sense why more people are building a home theater in their house. With some planning and amazing electronic toys, it’s possible to create a media room that delivers theater-quality sound and visuals. And you can enjoy it in more comfortable seats and without obnoxious strangers interrupting the show.

#FallFun

secor

via 201 – The harvest season is the perfect time to pick your own perfect pumpkin and take in the view from an old-fashioned perch: sitting on a bale of hay in a wagon.

Fortunately, that form of transportation is still available at several Bergen County farms every October.

Some farms also have corn mazes (day and night!), freshly made doughnuts, and apple cider – both hot and cold.

Contact the farms directly for hours and pricing.

In Bergen County:

Abma’s Farm, 700 Lawlins Road, Wyckoff. Saturday hayrides as well as group hayrides by appointment. (Closed Sundays.)

Demarest Farms, 244 Wierimus Road, Hillsdale. A pumpkin-picking hayride – and be sure to enjoy a freshly made doughnut after the trip!

Depiero’s Farm, 300 W. Grand Ave., Montvale. Hail a hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

Secor Farms, 168 Airmont Ave., Mahwah. Hitch a hayride to the pumpkin patch and corn maze.
