Autumn events are plentiful

Published 10:03 am Tuesday, September 8, 2015

While the weather outside may not necessarily feel like fall, the official transition is just a little more than two weeks away.

Like the other seasons, fall has plenty of opportunities for residents to get outside and enjoy the changing colors of the foliage and feeling the cooler temperatures.

Many may take the opportunity to take a trip elsewhere to attend events and see nature’s annual transition. However, we hope that Lawrence County residents also don’t forget about all of the wonderful events that offer these same things right here at home.

One of the regions nicest places to visit during the fall season is to take a walk through Lake Vesuvius and Wayne National Forest, as the area features many chances to see nature at its finest.

There are also many events that afford the ability not only to enjoy the changing weather, but also gather together with neighbors and the community at a myriad of events.

Some of these events include the annual sorghum festival in South Point, Chesapeake’s Octoberfest, the Ironton Lion’s Club Haunted Tunnel in Ironton or the Woodland Cemetery historical walk hosted by the Lawrence County Historical Society.

While everyone loves to get away and take advantage of the beautiful scenery, we hope that all residents take advantage of the wonderful opportunities right here at home.
