Autumn has so much to offer in Lawrence County. With the trees ablaze with vibrant colors, everywhere you look is breath-taking. It seems the whole county is alive with the joy of leaf-peeping, harvesting, pumpkin and apple-picking and a soulful appreciation of the bounty fall brings us.
Celebrating Harvest Time
We invite you to visit Ratkovich Farm in Fayetteville for fall family fun. Pick your own pumpkins or choose some already harvested. Explore the flower fields, and pick your own bouquet. A delightful and decorative sign of fall, choose from a wide assortment of deeply colorful mums to add fall color to your home. To add a taste of the season, Hoover’s candy truck will be on-site with warm aromatic beverages and sweet treats, that taste especially delicious in autumn. Charge your phone because you’ll have plenty of chances to take colorful and fun family selfies! Make plans now before the pumpkins are gone.
Music is in the Air
The Mitchell Opera House is moving musical performances outside to the Mitchell City Hall Shelter House. Join us at the October Outdoor Concert Series and bring a lawn chair or blanket. Then, settle in for a free and relaxing Saturday evening of entertainment beginning at 6 pm. What a lovely way to take in the natural beauty of the season while enjoying the talents of this musical line up.
