Between the changing colors and dropping temperatures, fall has arrived in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan. Whether lounging on your back porch or attending a football game, there’s always a special way to celebrate fall in Central Michigan.

The Mt. Pleasant Area Convention & Visitors Bureau was excited to bring back the annual #FeelsLikeFall Instagram contest for 2021! Residents and visitors alike were encouraged to snap a photo of what fall in Mt. Pleasant feels like to them, and then share it to Instagram. Having the ability to capture that familiar fall feeling through the perspective of someone different with each post is what makes this contest special, and we would like to share some of our favorites from this year!
