It is hard to believe that we are already into our last few days of September. The cooler weather makes it a wonderful time to start adventuring out and seeing everything that living in The Woodlands and the surrounding areas have to offer. Although Halloween is a full month away, the festivities begin before you know it. And Halloween isn’t the only thing that draws crowds this time of year! I wanted be sure you were aware of some of the fun events that will be taking place around town during October.
