The highlight for many folks is the rhythm band from a local community center that plays every year. They are amazing.

5 Things I Learned Today
1) October 27 is National Pit Bull Awareness Day-pet and hug a pitbull! (This is National Pitbull Awareness Month).
2) 5 percent of all dogs in the United States today are pit bulls.
3) Mercury is in retrograde–BIG time (actually this has been a running joke all week, but today I learned just how retro Mercury really is right now).
4) The stem of a pumpkin continues to nourish the pumpkin even after it’s cut, and helps it stay fresh.
5) The first Jack O’Lanterns were actually made from turnips. (Anyone for a jack o’turnip)?
