Things To Do! 11/2/2016 – 11/10/2016

Hello folks! We are now past Halloween and officially into the swift downward spiral into the holiday season. I was in the grocery store today and saw the clerks chunking clearance Halloween merch into bins while simultaneously stocking candy canes and Christmas paraphernalia. Poor Thanksgiving, everyone just slides right past it.

Anyway, we’ve got a holiday market or two this week to kick off the slide into everything jolly, but we’ve also got some Dia de Los Muertos events, and a lot of happily non-holiday themed events this week. Take a peek and pick your favorite!

If you know about an event this week that I’ve missed, please feel free to share the details in the comments below. If you have an upcoming event, PM me the info and I’ll make sure it gets on the list.
