October CNY Activities This Weekend

Several CNY activities taking place this weekend are just as colorful as the autumn foliage.

Hello! Welcome to another issue of this activity-filled prep guide. As October blows onward and the foliage continues to brighten, the amount of CNY activities never cease.

There is some great comedy, shows closing and opening this weekend, fundraisers, music (of course) and more. Pick and choose, buy some local goods and load up the weekend so it blows by.
