I live in the oldest town in TN and it is also the home of the National Storytelling festival! That event is coming up Oct 7 -9. http://www.storytellingcenter.net/festival/
At the same time there is the Unicoi Apple Festival! Oct 7-8. http://www.unicoicounty.org/applefest.php
If your in the area or want a get away over that weekend check them out. While your at it give me a call and stop in!
I tend to stay away from down town during the Story telling because it is a very busy place! Plus I usually am working. This year I am off so may just have to drop into town and walk around a while. There are fees to attend most of the story telling, but some are free and it's just fun to listen!
The Apple Festival---- well if it's Apples it should be there! Truly a sign of Autumn.
What's going on in your area this fall? I love fall and would love to just visit all the beautiful places at this time of year.
