Hall’s Pumpkin Farm starts this afternoon at 3 pm and runs all the way through October 31st. This pumpkin farm is free to enter and is always a lot of fun.

Tonight at Love and War in Texas is Mo Robson is playing and  is always a great show. Cover is just $8. Tomorrow night is Brian Keane (no relation to Robert Earl 😉 ) and cover is the same amount as it is on Friday.

On Sunday at Grapevine Mills Mall, DFW Ride for the Kids takes place supporting the Pediatric Brain Foundation.  The ride starts at 10 am, but get there early to register.

There is also a great 5k race at Delaney Vineyard’s on Saturday, October 1st.  The Vineyard 5k race starts at 8:30 am with live music and wine to follow.  This is a great time and the weather looks perfect for it.
