This weekend, we have plenty of great autumnal fun to keep you and the kiddos busy and entertained. Consider: a fun family musical, an awesome fall festival, a day full of giving, a high-energy PJ party, a farm-tastic opening, and a festival with loads of pumpkin-themed excitement. The Italian Festival also returns this weekend and will feature pizza tossing contests, delish food (think pizza, pasta, and gelato!), chef demonstrations and live music plus a bocce tournament and grape stomp.
