A busy Halloween weekend has passed and it is a few weeks until the next major holiday rolls around. The weather will be dropping and the wetness of rain and snow will make its presence felt.

Get off the couch and get out this weekend to enjoy some fun that you can't find anywhere else. Here are the events taking place this weekend.

There is much to do and no reason to sit at home moping cause the weather is colder. Go to one last Halloween party, enjoy some amazing music, eat some turkey, start your Christmas shopping, buy a new gun, jump around like a child, support a local team, or maybe learn about your family history. Whatever you decide to do this weekend, have fun and be safe.
