September’s changing foliage, cooling temperatures and sounds of school children signify that summer is coming to its end.

If you’d rather watch a sport than participate, tailgate with family and friends and then cheer on your favorite team at homecoming. Get culturally courageous at a range of food and art festivals across the state.
