Fall Events 2015

Labor Day is late this year, extending summer by an extra week, but Fall will come soon enough 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.
