Thanksgiving has got to be hands-down one of the best holidays of the year. Cool weather, but not too cool, amazing harvest foods, friends and family. I find this holiday much less stressful than Christmas, there is no early morning, no stress over gifts. Just a time to be with people you love celebrating our awesome local bounty. Relaxed, not rushed and warm, full bellies. Just perfect.
While this weekend is going to ROCK, please don’t forget that we have 4 more Market weekends! Our market does not close until Novemeber 3rd this season. Just two short weeks before our AMAZING Christmas Market that will take place on November 17th. While it’s true, this is your last weekend to see some of our vendors, there is still plenty of awesome left at Horton this year!
See you Saturday,
Some highlights for this weekend!
SHUUG AND THE TEMPORARY MEN! PLAYING THIS WEEKEND!We dare you to try to not groove to their sound!
