Winter may be just around the corner, but right now the air is crisp, the weather is clear, and the weekends are starting to fill up. Before you get too busy, don’t forget to make time in your schedule for one of the great events taking place in Southeast Indiana this month.
Looking for a little family fun this fall? You’ll find it at the Lobenstein Farm Pumpkin Festival in St. Leon. Planned for Oct. 20-21, this annual event is fun for kids of all ages.
