Weekend Wrap-up: Nov 2-3, 2013

1. With Halloween over get ready for CHRISTMAS AT THE FORUM! This show has developed a well-earned reputation for presenting the largest, most diverse selection of quality crafts and art in the region, for creating a joyous, festive atmosphere conducive to selling, and for continuing to bring ever-larger crowds of enthusiastic buyers to the show each year.

There are a number of vendors selling homemade toys and gifts for kids.

2. The second annual Harvest Hootenanny and Pumpkin Smash will take place at the Common Roots Urban Farm (Robie and Bell Rd) on Sat from 2-7 pm. Bring them your nasty old pumpkins so they can compost them to grow more great food next year. First they’ll smash them and turn the front hill into a pumpkin slip-n-slide! Come enjoy free food from the Mindful Mango, live music, and activities like ‘seed dating’ and garlic planting.”
