Get up, get out and explore before October slips away. Isn't it time for that date night, checking out all those fall flea markets you said you wanted to, and enjoying the fall weather with the family? Take your picks: rummage/yard sales, flea markets, an exhibit, a George Washington vestryman election commemoration, an art workshop, a parenting discussion on raising grateful children, one last lingering Oktoberfest to catch, Halloween bowling, a haunted trail, a zombie race, a dance benefit and a concert.
