Last Hurrah for Autumn Events in CNY

The last of the autumn events in CNY features storytelling, music, holiday productions on stage and ice, foodie feasts and more.

Winter will finally be here next Wednesday. (You’re not cheering loud enough.)

If you’re looking for events in CNY to end your autumn, here is a delightful list of warm (and not so warm) options that will get you in the mood or take your mind off of the upcoming winter season. There is something for everyone — the outdoor addicts, storytellers and listeners, foodies, sports fans, music snobs and performance art aficionados.

Or you could just sit around, watch television and eat Oreos.
