September in the High Country is a crazy time of year for families. Vacations have all come to an end and school has resumed, along with homework, social pressures and extracurricular activities. Sports seasons are kicking into high gear and “soccer moms” grab their travel mugs, fill their kid-wagon with gas and hit the road. With all the chaos of making sure kids are adjusting to new schedules, homework and extracurriculars, trying to plan quality time as a family can go by the wayside. Here’s our attempt to take the pressure off figuring out family time.
Here are some ideas for quality time in September:
Week 1: Music in the Valle
Week 2 – Grandfather Mountain KidFest
Week 2 – Taste of the High Country
Week 3 – Children’s Council Birthday Party
Week 4: Farmers Market and Park
Week 5: Creatures of the night, Bonfire Delight
Grab a sweatshirt and some s’mores ingredients and head over to Grandfather Mountain for special night the kids will never forget. Join the Grandfather Mountain Animal Habitats staff for Spooky Stories around the campfire and special after dark Behind the Scenes Tours of the Animal Habitats! Chairs, Hot Chocolate, apple cider and marshmallow sticks provided.
