Things to Do
Hill Country Happenings: September 25 – October 1, 2016
It is officially fall, folks, and the temperatures will be cooling down this week, making it easier to go outside and play a little. Pumpkin patches have opened their doors, festivals are in full swing, and there is just something in the air that screams Hill Country wine. Or pumpkin spice latte. Whichever. Point is, it’s time to dust off those cowboy boots and join us for some Hill Country fun!
