Events the Weekend!

If you're looking for something to do this weekend, here are some great local events to visit.

Craft Fair:
If you’re in or near Pullman, be sure to stop by the Autumn Arts and Crafts Festival at WSU’s Beasley Performing Arts Center. Admission is free and the fair promises over 100 vendors with handmade goods. (I’m thinking early Christmas shopping).

Friday, October 21: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, October 22: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Green Bluff Apple Festival:
A couple of weeks ago, Ethan and I went up to Green Bluff to pick apples and find pumpkins. The Apple Festival was in full swing with cider, corn mazes, orchard rides for kids, craft booths, live music, pumpkin donuts, and more.

The Apple Festival continues every weekend through October. My advice is to go up early in the day if you don’t want to wait in too many lines.

Farmer’s Market:
The Spokane Farmer’s Market (5th and Division) runs through October, so we’re on our last two weeks of the outdoor market. There is still tons of fresh produce to be found.

The indoor Spokane Public Market, located at 2nd and Browne, will continue to be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday to Saturday every week.
