Sounds like your area is similar to mine.  It's coming alive with harvest festivals and activities.

This is a great time of year to appreciate the bounty of the season.  It's almost Thanksgiving time in Canada.

'tis the season, Roy, for fall harvest festivals... Charlotte is certainly awash in them this month. Hope you get to enjoy your Heritage Harvest Festival.

I have only been to one Harvest Fest and it was an experience I will never forget. This one in your area sounds like a lot of fun with something for everyone! It's important to get outside and enjoy the weather while you can. I love that you are always involved in your community and encouraging others to embrace life to the fullest. The best place to start is with local events.

Oh my gosh, you know this is right up my alley! I'm hoping to get to some this year but, may have to live vicariously through you and Dolores this year. ENJOY, Roy!
