Weekend Wanderings – October 12-14, 2012

 

This summer Mom, Dad & the boys & I took a weekend road trip to Omaha for some camping, the zoo & JUNKSTOCK!!!  Talk about quality vendors!  I had a great time meeting new people and purchasing lovely items.  Hmmmm….come to think of it I still have the 20 horseshoes I bought there………..craft project?

This weekend is the fall edition of JUNKSTOCK.   It’s a really cool venue on a farm right outside of city limits.  I was so impressed this summer with their kiddo section….bounce house, stickers, tattoos….smart people to keep kids happy while mama shops!  They will be open Friday & Saturday from 9-6 and Sunday 10-4.  Maybe I’ll see you there!

If you plan on sticking around Saint Joseph be sure and check out all the fun on Saturday for Missouri Western State University’s Homecoming.  There will be a parade downtown at 9 and then FREE Artsy/Kiddo stuff from 10:30-12:30 on campus.  The boys & I are participating in both events and really looking forward to it.

The annual PumpkinFest will be held for it’s 17th year!  They have a neat tradition of a lit up wall of jackolanterns.  This 3 day event lasts from 5 pm Friday night until 5 pm Sunday.

On Sunday from 6-9 Word of Life Church is hosting their annual Octoberfest with corn maze & pony rides. I don’t think if you live around here you will have any problem finding something to do.

One last event going on is at a place I truly love:  Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge.   On Saturday they are having a 5 K Walk/Run to raise funds for the refuge.  It is truly a beautiful place and I really wish we could participate this year.

Did I miss anything?  What do you have planned for this gorgeous weekend?
