Calendar: October 2015

I have been preparing for a yard sale Saturday morning (if the weather holds out there are lots of yard sales this week) so this calendar is not done for the month but I have focused on making sure the first weekend has everything that I know about. I will be editing to add all the great Halloween and Fall events that I can find in a few days. If you know of anything to add, please leave a comment here or on the Facebook page. Thanks! Happy Fall, y'all!
