The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp, and the smell of pumpkin is in the air!  I love this time of year!  There are so many events around town too that are definite must see for your weekend!

 

First event on my list is this entire weekend down in Ellicottville.  Head down there for their Fall Festival!  The Festival runs all weekend and they have events all over town for this event.  You’ll find events at Holiday Valley the ski resort down there (which is beautiful no matter what season it is) and around the village of Ellicottville!  All weekend long you’ll have the chance to take chairlift rides, listen to some amazing live music, check out lots of fantastic arts and crafts, participate in a 5k run or the mountain bike race, and taste some incredible food!  Don’t worry about the kids because they even has kiddie rides for them!  This is definitely a festival you’ll want to make time for this year.  It’s Ellicottville’s Fall Festival this weekend!

 

Today and every Saturday night in Lewiston you can take part if the Marble Orchard Ghost Walks.  This event is for the ghost lover in each of us!  During the walk you’ll be able to step back in time with their costumed guides that will take you on a walk to explore the grim and ghastly deeds of Lewiston’s secret tales!  This will seriously make your skin crawl as they tell you all of the local ghost stories and tales of tragedy, crime and murder that has happened in Lewiston.  Even though most of the tales the guide tells you happened years ago most of the ghosts in the stories still haunt Lewiston so keep an eye out for them!!  I’ve tried this walk and I have to say I was on the edge listening to their stories.  Even if you don’t see a ghost it’s a fun filled adventure where you’ll get to learn about Lewiston’s rough and tumble frontier past.  The event happens rain or shine tonight and every Saturday night from 7 to 9pm.  The walk will begin in the courtyard.
