Some September Saturday Suggestions

There’s some fun stuff going on in HoCo this weekend. If you are up for a little “living locally” Columbia and Ellicott City both have good stuff going on.

In Ellicott City it’s the Fall Festival from noon until 5 PM on Saturday. The festive elements of this festival of fall include scarecrow making, a beer garden, a blacksmithing demo and live music by Yvonne’s Wild Spirits in Tiber Alley. The scarecrow making is sponsored by the Maryland Food Bank and scarecrow makers are requested to bring five cans of food for folks who may be facing a different kind of scary this fall.

The festival will be held rain or shine or hell or high water.

At 4 o’clock you should head on over to Columbia Gateway to witness the start of 24 Hours of Booty, a 24 hour cycling event of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Columbia and Charlotte, North Carolina are the only two cities to host this event.

The riders will loop continually around the 2 plus miles of Columbia Gateway Drive until Sunday at 4 PM.

I hope to get over there to snap some pictures to share early Saturday evening.
