And we’ve got some cool stuff coming up this weekend including the beginning of the 12 Days of Christmas at the Arboretum, the Festival at the Switchyard with the BareNaked Ladies, the Japanese fall Festival and more!

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 6. Don’t even get me started on how much I hate this. But don’t forget to turn your clocks back 1 hour at 2am.
