Fall Events 2016

Labor Day marks the last weekend of summer and the coming of Fall with crisp cool weather and colorful foliage.  Autumn in Kalamazoo is a great time for walking or riding in the woods, paddling down a river, or watching Sandhill Cranes.  Area festivals celebrate Labor Day, fall harvests, fish, and birds.
