I love this time of year. There seems to be so many fun weekend activities and the weather is just right. Cool, but not cold. Warm, but not hot. The sights of amber leaves, huge pumpkins, and crisp red apples, and the smell of cinnamon and homemade cider donuts.

So to take advantage of the sights and sounds of autumn, here are this weekend’s picks. (There are so many, I needed to do a post!)

Cathy and Marcy Song Shop – Natick

A rare appearance by two-time GRAMMY winners Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer who sing, yodel, chicken cluck in harmony, scat sing, and twirl a mean lariat rope! Their musical arsenal includes electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, mandolin, ukulele, percussion, and even a funky oatmeal box banjo and cigar box electric guitar. Music, comedy and audience participation create one contagiously high-spirited family show! From 2-3pm. Cost is $10-12.

And don’t forget about fun apple picking places like Smolak Farms, Honey Pot Hill Orchards, Sherburne Farm, and Bolton Apple Orchards. If you know of other events, please share!
