Wake Forest NC Calendar of EventsWow - the temps sure did take a dip in Wake Forest NC this past week!  I wimped and turned the heat on and put the flannels on the bed! 

As for events?  Well, as always residents were still out in full force for all the fun albeit a little more bundled up that usual...... This upsoming week has some great activities in store for just about everyone!  The extremely popular Halloween Spooktacular takes place this week and we have the MOST AMAZING OktoberFest this upcoming weekend - be sure to look for a detailed post about that one!

I'm starting to get a little jealous; Wake Forest always has all these really cool things to do and around by me in Milwaukee there is just a lot of beer.
