Weekend Events for Cumming, GA for 9/16 – 9/18, 2011

Disney Dream cruise.

The weekend is finally here! There are lots of fun family events this weekend and with the cooler temperatures coming, it is a wonderful way to be outside. Apologies for no post last week – our family went to Disney World and on the Disney Dream cruise! It was a blast and I highly recommend both trips. If your family has food allergies, Disney was very accommodating.

APPLE ORCHARDS/CORN MAZES/FARM FUN

It is the start of apple season and the orchards are opening!  Here is a directory of apple orchards and festivals in North Georgia. There are also corn mazes opening from Buford to Uncle Shuck’s to the North Georgia corn maze! Cagle’s Family Farm is also a fun-filled place to visit.
