The time has changed and it’s dark early, but there are plenty of reasons to get out and play this weekend!

Whether you are gearing up for the holidays or just want to chill, there are tons of options for every mood.  Take time to relax and catch some of the great musical performances on Friday or the Mountainfilm festival on Saturday.
 
Holiday shopping is starting sweet and slow with wine walks and fairs.
 
Feeling sporty?  Cheer for the Warriors, watch some surfing, or learn to fly fish are among the many ways to find yourself outside.
