Summer will officially be ending next week with the first day of fall coming sooner than most would like on September 22nd.  This weekend Mother Nature has a pretty nice forecast to head out and enjoy the last few days of summer, and there are some great activities and events happening in town all weekend long!  

From farmer's markets to bulls here are some of the events happening across town this weekend!  

Farmer's market Friday


It's a true sign that fall is just around the corner when we get to the last outdoor Farmer's Market of the season. Well, that is where we are, today (Friday, Sept. 16). 
The Pavillion at Kinsmen Park will be buzzing once again with activity as vendors and shoppers fill the shopping area.  This will be the last market of the season; after a busy summer and great weather the market will get going at 3 today and wrap up for the season at 6:30.
