Great DC Metro Area Events for the Fall

Start planning your DC and NOVA weekends ahead, folks!  Here are some amazing local green events coming up this Fall!

It is cool, slightly overcast days like these that remind us that we’re kicking into high gear for the season on celebration. I had a friend back in Austin that used to call it the candy season, basically from Halloween through Easter, we’re celebrating the season, and there is always some candy coated this, that or the other thing. Well, get ready for some candy coated fun as we enter into the season of festivals, fairs and community events! For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been sharing with you about some fun and exciting local events that are happening in DC, Arlington, and beyond.
