Autumn is upon us! Or at least our approximation of Autumn. Which, let’s be honest, is about 2 magical weeks before it’s just windy and cold. So live it up, people! Got some awesome things going on this weekend – from the opening of the State Fair to PokemonGo at the Arboretum. Live a little, play a little, and eat a WHOLE lot  –  just don’t miss any of the cool stuff going on. It’s all insta-worthy – especially the fair food!

Sept 29 – Oct 2 #SnitchList Weekend Guide: 

The State Fair of Texas Opens Friday!
Sept 30 – Oct 23
I’m unnaturally excited about the State Fair of Texas. I go every year. It’s always fun and I always eat too much and I always don’t care that I eat too much. It’s great. They have some awesome concerts – check their event calendar. Also, I don’t want ya’ll to pay full price – so get info on discount tickets here – you have to purchase these in advance (IMPORTANT).

Autumn at the Arboretum
Sept 17 – Nov 23
The Arboretum is super awesome this time of year – the weather is fine, the pumpkins are amazing to see, and you totally get away with sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte (nonironically). Not that there is anything wrong with PSL – I’ve been drinking them for weeks in this heat. I don’t care. It’s awesome. Anyway, the Imaginative Pumpkin houses with over 90,000 pumpkins, gourds and squash, along with 150,000 beautiful fall blooming plants and the most outstanding Children’s Adventure Garden in the world make it all worth – so check it out.
