Autumn is a great time of year. Many people in the Pacific Northwest favor this time of year. Autumn holds many fun activities and events throughout the season. Technically, fall doesn’t start until the end of September but September is pretty much considered the gateway to Fall. Most people say they feel as though Fall or Autumn has started when kids go back to School. It is always a little sad to say goodbye to Summer, we have so much fun during that time! Fall has is its own nice set assets that we can enjoy. So let’s not stop enjoying our community just because the Weather won’t be quite as nice. Get out there and have some fun! 

Here are some great events in And Around Salem this September!
