The Week Ahead for South Florida: Pumpkins and Fall Festivals

Bedner's Pumpkin Patch

The Calendar for October is getting fuller by the moment!  There is no excuse to miss any of your favorite October events anymore!  Thanks to all of you who helped out by Submitting your Community Event to our Calendar. As always, Free Community events can be submitted at no charge!  City Recreations departments with minimal charges are also free!  I am pumping up the list as we speak on the search for the best Fall Festivals, Halloween and Pumpkin Patches around!  If you know of one, let me know!  I really think that we have the biggest list ever!

Big News:  It’s Publishing Week at my daughters school so I joined in the fun and finally published my first book!  Have you ever had an animal that you were sure was actively trying to be nice, but just ended up causing havoc? Read about my cat Baby Girl and why she did all the crazy things she did.  My daughter liked hearing the stories about this crazy cat, so I put them down in a little book.

 

My Pick of the Week!

The Week Ahead for South Florida 9/18/14

Bedner's Pumpkin Patch

Vader PumpkinsWe are getting ready to replant our garden now.  I decided to go the community garden route again, however we got a bigger plot this year.  I am hoping that we are able to grow a few more things than we managed last year.  The crazy alien looking carrots were fun, however our tomatoes were pretty sad.  I love how my kids thinks it is the best thing on earth to eat the things that we grow.  Keep your fingers crossed for us that we do a little better this year.

If you go to our Events Calendar and click on the advanced setting you can search by category.  Choose Holiday to see all the fall festival and holiday activities that are coming up starting in October.

The Week Ahead Events List for South Florida 11/21/13

Fishing Hall of Fame Museum in Dania Beach

We are all excited about Turkey Day (or Chicken Day as my daughter calls it!) around here!  I am not sure how Thanksgiving will go for us this year.  Last year when I set the turkey on the table my daughter (who had been sitting at the table making a racket begging for dinner to hurry up) announced that the turkey was her friend and she was not eating it!  So I took the the turkey back into the kitchen, sliced it up, put it on a plate and told her it was chicken.  Since we will be having dinner at my cousins house I am not sure what will happen.  Should be fun!

Dubois Park in Jupiter, FL
Dubois Park in Jupiter, Florida

Now, I don’t think any of my readers are out partying too hard, but if you do find yourself out and you have had too much to drink AAA Tow to Go is available to members and non members to take you home.  The program is available from November 28- December 1.

My pick of the week is a day at the Beach!  Check out DuBois Park in Jupiter!  It is my fFishing Hall of Fame Museum in Dania Beachavorite place for a float!

Don’t feel like being outside in our record heat?  Take the kids to the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum.  Honestly, I am not at all into fishing and I found it really interesting.  It is amazingly high tech and hands on!

There is a decent list this week.  I am still building the Holiday List, but it is getting pretty long too!  Enjoy!
