That cold blast of air you felt when you opened the door this morning sealed the deal: Fall is here!
One great way to embrace the season is to go pick something. You could try apples, cherries, pumpkins, your nose... (that joke would kill with my five-year-old). Jennifer Cooper of Ellie Bellie Kids toy company and Classic Play blog has a great round-up of orchards in Baltimore, Howard, and Carroll counties on the Catonsville Patch site. Pick one!
Sunday is the Jewish Party in the Park, a celebration of Jewish Baltimore in Druid Hill Park on the eve of the High Holiday Days. Spearheaded by Beth Am Synagogue nearby, the event will include music form Y-Love and Diwon, kids' activities, a produce stand from the Kayam Farm, and lots of info about Jewish life in Baltimore City.
In a less Kosher vein, Saturday is the 10th annual Pigtown Festival, along Washington Boulevard in Southwest Baltimore. There will be lots of food and beer, plus music by well-known acts like Erin McKeown and local favorites Soul Cannon and the annual running of the pigs (pictured)!
