Even though summer is coming to a close soon, and kids are back in school, doesn't mean you can't keep having fun.
There are a lot of great upcoming music festivals this Fall where you can get out and keep enjoying the fresh air and sunshine and good vibes and sweet music. And some are even free, so if you've got bills to pay, student loans, saving up for the holidays, whatever, you can enjoy the sights and sounds at no additional fees.
Plus send me all your sweet fest dates/info in October, so I can do less Googling and FB event saving and post something fun next month too.
