Calendar: October 2014


You guys! There are two free LEGO builds at Toys R Us this month!

I really want to do the Oakwood Cemetery Tour Saturday morning. Plus so many Trunk or Treats and Halloween events. It's hard to decide what to do this month. Our favorite "non-halloween- halloween" event is Taylor Road Treats the Town. We always have a good time there.

 I will be adding more events as I find them. If you know of any, leave a comment here or on the River Region Family Facebook page.  I know there are many more Fall Festivals that I will have to add as it gets closer to the end of the month.
