Some of us like the heat and some of us like cooler weather, warm sweaters, falling leaves, a bonfire and pumpkin spice lattes. No matter what your preference, one thing is certain…fall has arrived. This year we are lucky enough to be able to go back to enjoying some of the great fall traditions in the area. Below we have highlighted just a few of the many things you and your family can get out and do during the first part of October.

OKTOBERFEST- Naper Settlement is hosting Oktoberfest Oct. 1 from 5-10 p.m. and noon-10 p.m. Oct. 2.
