While the pandemic continues to affect the activities offered around town, there are still many options for fall fun. Art fairs and gallery shows are still happening, as are a variety of Halloween events. Schools aren’t offering field trips these days, but we have suggestions for field trips (and day trips) that will be enjoyable for the whole family. And it’s important to make time for date nights, even if you’ve been stuck at home with your significant other for some time now. Check out our expanded event calendar to find out what’s still taking place in the capital city this fall.
