It seems the second the weather drops below 70 degrees, fall is in full effect with pumpkin spice everything and caramel apples. The quintessential autumn activity is spending a crisp fall afternoon at a pumpkin patch, picking the perfect one to adorn your porch.

Are you someone who…
     Can’t get enough of cooking competition shows?
     Seeks out Martha Stewart’s tips and tricks for party planning, home décor and beyond?
     Enjoys good food, complemented by beer, wine and spirits?

Then block off the afternoon of Oct. 7 on your calendar, and make plans to be at Clay Terrace in Carmel, Indiana for the inaugural IndyStar Food & Wine Experience, featuring Martha Stewart Culinary Experts.

Luckily for us, Hamilton County, Indiana is full of family-friendly dining options!
