Falling in to Halloween

Greetings!  It's been a while, but we are revamping and I am here to stay. 
A few things I'm excited about (and you should be too)...
#1 Appalachian Festival (Fri. Oct.29) - Ok, I really think this will be a fun and educational event put on by Black Mountain Primary and Elementary Schools...and since I am now a parent of a student there...I am pumped!

"Friday afternoon at 4:30, the celebration begins at Black Mountain Elementary with a Showcase of Student Work and Teacher Demonstrations including an apple tasting, butter making, storytelling, pickle tasting and toy making. At 6:00, the celebration moves over to Black Mountain Primary with an additional Showcase of Student Work by the primary students, performances by local and regional musicals as well as BMP and BME students, and demonstrations and regional vendors! The Appalachian Festival is a school and community event and is free and open to the public."
#2 Also on Friday 5-7pm (dont' know how I will be in two places at the same time) a Fall Festival at the Carver Center put on by Montreat Morning School -

"The fire department will be there, the Fuller Family Farm will be there with horse rides, bouncy house and slide, obstacle course by Young Life, games, crafts, PIES IN THE FACE (come throw one at me!) Door prizes, amazing food (we have vegan, vegetarian, and full on meat lovers options!) And my favourite: CAKE WALK!!!"
#3 Still enjoying the remaining color on the mountains and a brightly colored carpet of leaves on the ground.
#4 Last regular Saturday (9am-noon) for the Black Mountain Tailgate Market! Come and enjoy one last morning of the harvest!
#5 Halloween night on Church St. - If you don't already know, this is the place to be for the biggest show Halloween night. It is great to see lots of folks from the community come out for the night (not that you will recognize them), and it is fun for any age! There are a few houses that really vamp up the scare factor (catering to adults and teens), but many homes keep it non-spooky and low key for a less daunting experience for the little ones. And there is LOTS of candy!!!

#6 I am most excited about the beginning of the Holiday season...scarves, boots, fires in the fireplace, hot chocolate and chai, dressing up for parties, good food, friends and family, and lots of time to write and reflect on some amazing people and places that make living here in Black Mountain just...fit!
What are you excited about?
