Fall officially starts on Saturday, and while some are mourning the changing of seasons, there is still much fun to be had in the coming months, so don’t be dismayed.
Things are going to be busy this weekend in Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan. Immerse the family in art, enjoy fishing and archery, attend fall festivals. These are only a small sampling of what’s happening this weekend, read on to discover other events.
Tree leaves are starting to turn beautiful fall colors, so it is not too early to be thinking about a fall color tour. Get ideas here – Fall Color Tour Ideas for Kalamazoo Area Families.
