1. In case you missed it earlier this week, there’s a new round-up of fall festivals happening around the area this season — and some have already started. For more inspiration for weekend fun, hover over the ADVENTURES tab at the top of the blog for a drop down of all kinds of fun local activities. (And don’t forget, a few Smithsonian museums open today!)
2. Take a little time trip this weekend at Mount Vernon’s Colonial Market & Fair. The annual event recreating life in 18th-century America at George Washington’s old estate. Chat with colonial artisans as you watch them demo period crafting techniques (you can buy them, too), listen to live music from the colonial era, tour the estate grounds, meet General Washington, and more. It’s running Saturday and Sunday 9am – 5pm,. Admission is $18-20/adult, $10/age 6-11, free/5 & under.
3. A panic free guide to celebrating Rosh Hashanah during the pandemic. L’Shana Tova!
5. Haha… yep.
