Falloween Fun List

To catch you on what was happening for the Falloween Fun List over the weekend here it is:

Day #5:

Face your acrophobia (fear of heights) while riding the chair lift at Holiday Valley Resort, happening Saturdays and Sundays until October 20th. 

Falloween Fun List Day #4

Look out for ghouls, spooks, and creatures of the night while riding the Nightmare Hayride in Ellicottville NY.  The continuing mazes through the fields then barn will be sure to give you more than just the creeps, perhaps some Nightmares!   

Falloween Fun List

If you love Fall and Halloween then you are sure to get a real scream out of our Falloween Fun List we are posting on Facebook.  Each day we will feature a spooky event, fall recipe, or scary item for purchasing to get you in the mood for the Great Month of October. 

You might just fall in love with an Alpaca

For the upcoming National Alpaca Farm Days happening this weekend, I want to encourage others to get out and visit an Alpaca Farm and meet one of these incredible animals.  You may find yourself not wanting to leave without taking one home. 

Fall Foliage Report

Colors remain dull with shades of green, yellow, rust and occasionally a bright red.

By the upcoming weekend, I am guessing we will be at midpoint and about 35% changed.

Fall Foliage Report

Our leaves are still in the JUST BEGINNING stage with the predominate color being Dull SHADES OF GREEN with yellow/orange touches here and there.

By this weekend, I predict that our area will be at about 15% changed.
