After a long, hot Summer, I think it’s safe to say that we’re all excited that Fall is finally here! Although it doesn’t quite feel like Fall just yet, we can say with certainty that cooler temperatures are on the way. As the air becomes cool and crisp and the leaves begin to transition to vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, we are surrounded by all the wonderful sights and smells of the Fall season.
At Main and Stone, October happens to be one of our favorite months of the year. There’s no shortage of fun to be had this month between all of the festive events and activities taking place out in the community, as well as right here at Main and Stone. On October 7th, we’ll be hosting a Pumpkin Painting Happy Hour where you can sip on a drink and paint a pumpkin with your neighbors. On October 17th, join us for a Paint Your Pup Class in the NOMA Lounge where you will receive a sketch of your pup on canvas to paint for only $20. Our Halloween Party will be held on October 29th in the NOMA Lounge where you can enjoy spooky treats and a witch’s brew punch. Wear your best Halloween Costume for a chance to win a prize!
Be sure to check out the 3-day Fall for Greenville festival held on October 11-13. This is a family-friendly event where you can enjoy live music, food from 45+ local restaurants serving over 200 dishes, sample wines and learn about local beers. Take a short drive with your family to do some apple or pumpkin picking, see the farm animals, take a wagon ride, find your way through the corn maze, and enjoy some delicious Fall treats at Denver Downs or Stewart Farms. If you enjoy haunted attractions and you’re looking for a good scare, test your fears at Nightmare Dungeon or MadWorld.
Of course, there’s more to Fall than just enjoying the many seasonal activities offered in your area. You should take this time to prepare for the upcoming Winter months and the colder weather that accompanies them. Main and Stone has some tips to help prepare your apartment for the colder weather to keep you and your family warm this Fall/Winter without breaking the bank. Reverse your ceiling fans- this helps because it pulls the cool air up to the ceiling and then disperses the warmer air throughout the room. Use draft stoppers on your doors- these are quick and easy to put in place or remove and help to prevent a draft of cold air from entering into your apartment from under the door. Install insulated curtains- these help to keep the cold air out and the warm air inside your apartment. Use a dehumidifier- these are helpful during the colder months because they reduce the discomfort of the dry air as well as increasing the efficiency of your heating system. Before the temperatures get too cold, turn on your heat to test it out and make sure it’s working properly. If you experience any issues, let maintenance know so the issue can be resolved before the cold weather arrives!
Enjoy your Fall season! We’re looking forward to seeing you and your neighbors at our upcoming events this month. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see what other events we’re planning in the months to come!
