Events this Week: Oct. 12 – 19, 2022

This week has some great events, including the long-awaited Audubon Fall Festival. Even if you aren’t a birdie, there’s a lot to love about the annual event. Nature Nick will give free animal presentations and artists from the region come to display their wares. It’s also the best place to learn how to get into birding. Other notable events this week include the ever-popular Wildwoods 50s, 60s, 70s, weekend and the first Trunk or Treat of the season.
