Things to Do! October 10, 2017 – October 12, 2017

 Another great week ahead! This calendar of events starts on Tuesday and will take you into Thursday.  These three days are packed!         

The rain should hopefully be gone by Tuesday and we will have a nice dry week. Make sure you enjoy the final weeks of farmers’ markets in the area – most of them wind down by the end of October! You can also find some great pumpkin picking and apple picking ideas in the recent published guides.  Many farms have activities during the week! 

Otherwise, you’ll find story times and indoor play abound! These are always great ways to fill the days with the little ones that are home! I miss those days!!  đŸ˜„ 

Have a good week everyone!
