Happening This Weekend - 9/1/2017

Whoa, fall wardrobe weather! Autumn is here...the cooler air breezes in and some leaves are turning. You know what that means: Beer festivals and Halloween decorations are just around the corner. If you're in Beacon for the Labor Day Weekend, you're in for easy entertainment. You have tons of Art Galleries to choose from, outdoor patios in our Restaurant Guide, and some of the best shopping in the Hudson Valley in our Shopping Guide.

PS: If you're donating to Hurricane Harvey relief funds this weekend, go the extra step and mark your calendar for a few months from now as a time to donate as well. Victims of hurricanes past have said that support slows down after the weather clears and flood waters recede, which is when some of the most important levels of support are needed.

Weekend dates are featured from A Little Beacon Blog's Things To Do In Beacon Guides, but more dates throughout the week are at the Guides themselves on the website,  so be sure to check them during the week.
Sponsored by Antalek and Moore for car insurance.
