It’s no secret the weather in September and October is about the best anyone could ask for. It’s such a nice reprieve from the Llano Estacado’s dog days of summer. When September rolls around, we’re ready for outdoor activities, and these are a few of the best we found. This is a quick list of events that will take you through mid-October if you’re looking to eat or drink local, outdoors, with fellow estacado dwellers.
