We all knew the fantastic warm weather couldn’t last. No coincidence that most of this weekend’s free events list takes place (sigh) indoors. Be sure to check out our accompanying weekend Family Fun List (not free, but most activities are reasonably priced) for more outdoor options. Fall is officially here!
