It’s September which means fall is approaching soon. Stores have taken down their summer fun displays and replaced them with pumpkins and leaves. Coffee shops are adding pumpkin spice drinks back to their menus for a limited time. Halloween costume stores are resurfacing. Bring on the football, hot chocolate and apple cider. As we wait for the leaves to fall and the air to chill, here are some events in the Triad to enjoy in the meantime.
