It has seriously cooled off, which means outdoor time is less yoga in the park and more hot apple cider at fall festivals. I’m good with that.

Want to learn how to Cyclocross bike race or just learn what Cyclocross actually is? Then you should head to Kalorama park for BicycleSpace’s introductory event from 6-8 p.m. tonight. Don’t forget your bike.
Community Cider Press
Bring some apples that you grew, bought or found along with a vessel of your choice to Twin Oaks Community Garden and get those apples pressed into juice. Then stick around to hear a selection of hot and cold cider recipes so you can put that juice to use.
Put your nature knowledge to the test with REI’s pub trivia event, co-sponsored by the Nature Conservancy at the Wunder Garden. Bring a pal, and your best knowledge of National Parks, geography, history, outdoor activities and gear.
Since the air has officially developed that “fall” feeling, it’s time to make your first, or maybe last s’mores of the season. There’s really no better way to go about it than going to Wunder Garden because that way you get the authentic campfire experience without having to find a tent or dig a pit in your yard. So easy.
Saturday is the first day of October, which means fall is fully inescapable, not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. Honor fall by heading to the Old City Farm and Guild for live music, workshops, drinks, food and of course, pumpkins.
If you find yourself in Baltimore on Sunday, you’d be wrong not to head to the Fun Festival. It’ll be filled with jazz music, dancing, a children’s area, creative activities, carnival rides, various vendors and four food courts. That’s more food courts than most Midwestern malls have.
Go forth into nature!
