Biketoberfest is an annual fundraiser for the Bike Coalition and features beers, brats, bikes and bands.
Every year in my neighborhood we have a Halloween parade for small children that starts at 4pm. This is so the can safely trick or treat along a set route before it gets dark.
We’ve been doing this for 7 years and we keep saying it will be Alex’s last year because she is getting older but we just don’t want to miss it.
I don’t go out too much but have been exploring the city a little more than I usually do. Somehow I have accidentally come upon two local bands that I really liked and had no idea would be playing when I stopped at a couple of different parks.
It’s made me want to pay more attention to free local music but I have a feeling that it’s one of those serendipity types of things – when you find something that you weren’t looking for. If I start searching for free and cool local music, I won’t find it.
