It is finally happening, and the wait is over. The weather will finally be dropping this weekend, and then it will be time to pull out some of the winter clothes and prepare for the inevitable, but luckily it is not dropping so drastically that you can't still get outside and enjoy it. While the temperatures may be a little cooler this weekend, that doesn't mean you can't have fun. It will finally feel truly like Fall and that means you need to enjoy some Fall activities and events. There is a ton happening this weekend and if you decide to get outside, you will be rewarded with a fun weekend with plenty to do.

Thursday, October 20 Through Saturday, October 22 - Burley Straw Maze
One of the best activities to do this time of year is to head to one of the many straw or corn mazes and get lost for a while, as you try to find your way out. The Burley Straw Maze is one of the biggest in the area, and it is worth the drive if you haven't been yet this year. They are open on Thursday from 4 PM until 9 PM, Friday from 1 PM until 11 PM, and Saturday from 10 AM until 11 PM, with 8 PM to 11 PM being the haunted maze.

Saturday, October 22 - Frankentoys for Kids
Anybody that has ever played with toys has had that moment where you are playing, you are having fun, and your toy's head comes off, or a wheel, a tail, or some part of it breaks. You are devastated and heartbroken. As a parent, it is usually our job to try and fix the toy, but sometimes there is nothing we can do. This weekend, there is an event to help you use those broken pieces and make some brand-new toys. Bring your broken toys to the Twin Falls Public Library for Frankentoys with Kids from 10 AM until 2 PM and you can build new toys by using old parts. The event is free and kids are encouraged to bring their broken toys.
Sunday, October 23 - Kelly Butler Dart Tournament
Kelly Butler is a dart player in the Kimberly and Twin Falls area that has fallen on some hard times lately, and her friends and family are helping her out, and you can too.

It is $10 to play in the tournament, but if you are unable to make it and want to donate, you can reach out to Terri Heath at 208-969-1303, or you can stop by the bar and donate in person.
