Fall Fun Festivities {2016}

Fall officially starts this week and while the current weather would say otherwise, the cooler temperatures and autumn leaves really are coming soon! The time has come to start rearranging your wardrobes, sipping soup, and of course, drinking and eating all things pumpkin. I’m back again today to serve as your virtual tour guide through some local fall fun festivities happening during the months of September, October and November.
