This weekend is JAM PACKED with so much good stuff. Fall is my favorite season because of all the Fall Festivals and opportunities to dress your kiddos up and go celebrate Halloween (over and over again!). I feel like I need a personal assistant to make my itinerary for the weekend because I want to do ALL THE THINGS. Hope to see you out and about! Here are all the details of all the local happenings this weekend 10/19-10/20:
