September Events

September is a transitional month; summer is over, but the days are still warm and thoughts of pumpkin patches and warm apple cider may still be a few weeks away (well, maybe not for those of us who think there's nothing wrong with getting a little giddy at the sight of Autumn décor in stores). If you're looking for something to do this month, the city has plenty to offer. Check out some of these events below:
