As the cold breeze moves in, most people are more inclined to snuggle up by the fireplace than go out, but what many people forget is that the most fun is to be had outdoors. The best part is that there’s no need to travel far when all the fun and festive events are happening close to home. Here are a few local holiday festivals you should check out over the next few weeks:
