And, the centre's owners are inviting you to come and familiarize yourself with the harvesting of cranberries and all of its glory. 

This is an opportunity for yourself and your loved ones to enjoy a fun-filled day of harvesting cranberries in action while you roam through an "eco-discovery trail."

Throughout the course of the tour, there will be tastings, culinary demonstrations, and a lot of information on the festival itself. 

If you haven't already fallen in love with fall activities, this one is bound to turn you into a true fan. 

Don't forget to bring a mask, as it's mandatory to wear one at this year's festival!

Your journey will begin at the center where they will "climb aboard a covered wagon and prepare to be amazed by the beauty of cranberry harvesting" as stated on its website

Throughout this adventure, you'll be able to travel along scenic routes while learning the many secrets of this berry.

There are three types of tours to pick from, including group tours and, for those boogie cranberry lovers reading this, a VIP tour for up to six people. 

The complete tour will take about ninety minutes.

When you're finished, you'll head to the town cranberry market and enjoy some pretty great tasting cranberry infused beer, which is as good as it sounds. 

For those who are feeling fancy, there are even helicopter rides for VIP ticket holders!

From above, participants will get a view of the enormous bogs and harvest.

From Monday until Sunday, there's no reservation required.

But, if you're coming with a group, you're going to have to reserve- that's just the rules folks! 

This picturesque activity is bound to both inspire and leave you in awe. And, of course, you're bound to get some pretty incredible social media content.
