And here are just a few of the things you can enjoy this weekend–starting today!

Tales from the Departed: Gone But Not Forgotten

Brought to you by the Wayne County Historical Museum, at the Earlham Cemetery today you can learn about the lives of some prominent citizens of Wayne County who have come back to life just for the day to tell you their stories.  Saturday, October 6, (today) from 1 pm to 5 pm.  Cost is 10.00 per car.  See the list of citizens and the actors who will portray them below:

Annual 4th Street Fair

4th Street Fair: “The Tree”

“The tree” is in full color as you can see from our own annual picture with our daughter Mary Grace, and the street is just waiting for you come out today.

There is the always popular fall foods, decorations, art, live music, and dance.  Something for everyone to enjoy today and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm.  Last year the YMI was also serving food next door.  Plenty of parking around the area as well.  Enjoy this crisp sunny Fall day with friends and family, or enjoy a day out for yourself.

The Trees In Wayne County Are In Full Color

As I drove down 40 yesterday I stopped to take a few pictures of the trees turning to full color.  This is a great weekend to enjoy a drive in the country to see for yourself that Fall really is here.

I stopped in Cambridge City and had lunch at the Pour House, one of my favorite places.  They had just made some homemade mushroom soup and it was divine.  I also enjoyed a 3 cheese grilled cheese sandwich (half) made to order with pickles, perfectly grilled.

If you want  a peaceful activity this weekend, I recommend a ride on 40 and stopping in at one of your favorite locally owned diners, and viewing some of the wonderful antiques.

Have a great weekend!
