A Birmingham Mom’s Ultimate Guide to October

0

October has to be one of the best months of the year here in the South. We get warm days and cool nights, perfect for getting out after a long hot summer. Around town, you will find plenty of ways to enjoy the beautiful days exploring fall festivals, outdoor entertainment, or, like many of us, starting your holiday shopping. And don’t forget about the pumpkin patches! Check out our Ultimate Guide to Pumpkin Patches for the many, many options Birmingham has to offer!
