Fall comes around and it seems we all coop ourselves up inside. But why not take the opportunity at the Autumn Fair to head outside, enjoy the fresh air, and the bright, warm colours that paint the city? We’ll give you 12 reasons you should come check it out!
*Note the event will mostly be held indoors at 2305 West 7th Ave, with Food Trucks and Pumpkin Patch outside under tents, as rain is predicted for Saturday*
