Every now and then we like to stop talking about fences long enough to shine a light on some of the amazing things that are happening in our local community. It’s a way that we can support good causes. It’s also a great way to get neighbors out, about, and meeting each other.
And let’s face it, October is an amazing time to get out anyway. You get that perfect fall weather, our beautiful fall color, and the Halloween season all rolled up in one.
Doing NaNoWriMo this year? Get prepared by heading to the novelist’s workshop at AllWriter’s Workplace and Workshop in Waukesha on October 15th. When you join this workshop you won’t just write in November, however. You’ll spend the whole year working with a supportive instructor and like-minded authors. It kicks off at 9:00 AM at 234 Brook Street, Unit 2, Waukesha.
Looking for a fun festival? Try Fall Fest at Piala’s on October 17 and 18. There will be a craft fair, live music, food, and family activities, including pumpkin carving, a bounce house, and a giant slide.
On October 22 you can support a great cause by heading to the Paws and Claws Gala at the Pfister hotel. This elegant event will support the Racine and Ozaukee Campuses of the Wisconsin Humane Society. You’ll enjoy a 5-star dinner, wine, and an auction. Come in black tie affair or bring out your best Roaring 20s fashion.
Get into the Halloween Spirit by visiting the Pumpkin Palvilion at Humboldt Park. You’ll get to view over 800 pumkins carved by residents of Milwaukee’s Bay View subdivision. The Grand Lighting kicks off at 7 PM on October 23rd, but the event’s going on all weekend long. There will be plenty of games and activities for kids of all ages. Head to 3000 S. Howell Avenue to get in on the fun.
On October 24 there are plenty of places where you can get in on some early (and safe) Halloween fun. You could head to the Kenosha Public Museum for Boo Fest, where your kids can wear a costume and trick or treat all three Museums. You can also head to downtown Pewaukee, where area merchants will be handing out candy to kids in costume. Or you can head to the Kosciuszko Community Center in Milwaukee for a safe Halloween and Resource Fair.
No matter how you choose to celebrate Fall, A1 Fence hopes you have a happy, safe holiday!
