Calendar of Events for Lower Westchster Oct. 15-21 2010

Happy FallWestchester events are are now in full fall swing.   My post on Halloween events from Historic Hudson Valley shows that the season is in full swing.  The nor easter should be behind us by Saturday – so it should be a great fall weekend for events indoors or out.  So the Westchester events calendar is once again up for your convenience.  There are plenty of Westchester County events to pick from.  Of particular note the famous BLAZE at Van Cortlandt Manor with 4000 lit jack o’lanterns begins this weekend.

Note the Upcoming Events Section at the top of the calendar.  These events tend to sell out  so planning ahead is essential.
