Wednesday's Weekend Wishlist for September 20

Image
Well, it's Wednesday again.  The day best known for keeping your weekly calendar from being laterally symmetrical, and for making Meredith blush and giggle in 1st grade phonics when it was sounded out as Wed-Nes-Day and had a drawing of a bride and groom to emphasize the "wed" sound.  

And because without further help, reading those tidbits would be literally the most interesting part of Wednesday, here's a roundup of things to do this weekend.  And by "weekend," I mean Thursday to Sunday…because we can't exclude Friday-eve or Sunday Funday from the mix!

Roundup of event listings.  If you have an event to advertise contact getthefunout@gmail.com

Plan ahead:

All the festivals you could hope to attend:  Phoenix Fall Festivals (but really it's around the state).  Oktoberfest, chili pepper festivals, corn mazes galore.

For visitors from hot Arizona, Roanoke can easily be a three season destination.  Come for the spring blooms, the fall colors, or the ability to condescend to locals about how 92 degrees in July is NOT hot.
