It’s more than the smell of fresh sharpened pencils and the site of the yellow school bus as kids head back-to-school. September is festivals, parades, the official kick-start to football season, beer and food festivals, and outdoor plays in the park. While your week nights might be filled with running errands to get last minute school supplies and helping the kids out with their homework, fill your weekends by taking advantage of all the fun activities happening in North County. Happy September everyone!
