Fall Festival Time
As far as seasons go, Spring is definitely my favorite. Fall itself is not so bad, but I can’t shake the feeling of the impending freeze of Winter that’s to come. One great thing about Fall is the abundance of festivals.
Whether you’re looking for family activities, or to drink some good beers with friends in the city, suburbs, or down the shore, there really is something for everyone.
