Fall Along the River

A mix of fall happenings going on up and down the Great River Road over the next couple of months. I am not much of a 'quaint fall festival' type, but whenever I have gone to some such thing on the eastside along the river I have ended up digging it.

The events are of course not all in an apple-butter sort of vein (not that there is anything wrong with apple butter or events that involve it, but variety is nice). I loved the Tow-Boat Festival in Grafton last year. The re-enactments of 18th Century war activities at Fort Des Chartres and other spots are not something you see everyday. Today the Alton Area Landmarks Association is having a house tour from noon-6pm that I might hit.

Here is a calendar of events to check out if you find yourself in the mood for a ride. http://www.greatriverroad.com/all/allcalendar.htm
