Morgan County is still, in many ways, farm country. In farm country, the end of summer means harvest time, and what do you do after the harvest? You celebrate! Maybe that's why we have so many great family-friendly fall festivals and events in September and October. Here's a quick run-down of some of our favorite fun festivals and events happening in Morgan County this season. (Be sure to watch for future posts with more details about events as they get closer.)
