I love a good fall festival. I’ve always loved stuff like this, but since having kids, I see them as a fantastic way to occupy some time. Since they are usually outdoors, we can all get some vitamin D and have a good time. There are several Fall Festivals going on in the Katy area this season. There are plenty of chances for you to have a good time!
Also, don’t forget to check the Pumpkin Patch post to check out special events happening at our local pumpkin patches! Some of them have special Saturday events happening throughout the month.
