Fall craft fairs, Glow Run, and music performances happening this weekend in Fremont County

    Isn’t it awesome to see the trees dressing in their brilliant yellow and red Fall fashions? Time to dust off those Halloween decorations and pick some pumpkins. This weekend, there are a couple of craft fairs, just in time for some early holiday shopping…plus there are a couple of businesses having special events, too. Shop local!

    I noticed a class at the Lander Art Center that I was really interested in…an Autumn Leaf Mosaic Workshop. I went to the LAC website to sign up, and it must be really popular because now there’s a waitlist! But while I was there on the website, I saw a couple of other classes that looked really cool, too. It made me think about all of the great things that Fremont County has to offer, and though I live in Riverton…Lander, Shoshoni, and even Dubois aren’t too far of a drive to enjoy some wonderful activities, events, classes, workshops, performances or fundraisers that support our communities. So many opportunities right here in Fremont County that can get us out and about!

    So grab your sweaters (and shopping bags) and enjoy another wonderful Fall weekend in the 10!
