CNY Events this Mid-October Weekend

Plenty of CNY events this weekend as colorful as the natural foliage.

This weekend is a perfect time to get out and enjoy as many CNY events as the pleasant days dwindle. The colder air is creeping in, but as our skin crawls at the slightest breeze our eyes feast on the magnificent displays of changing foliage.

Whether you decide to attend some craft shows to find fall decor, attend outdoor festivals, listen to insightful presentations or check out the music scene, getting sweaty in the mosh pit or sitting comfortably in the crowd. The weather is supposed to be pleasant, so enjoy that fresh air and take in that Vitamin D.
