I LOVE NY started the “New York Fall Foliage Report” on September 12 and will continue until the end of the foliage season, around the first or second week in November. Fulton County has its own “foliage spotters” to participate in this annual report.
Reporting station: Gloversville
Percent of trees predicted to have changed by the coming weekend: 50-60%
Predominating colors: Still green with more yellows, oranges and reds
Some areas are still predominantly green with areas nearing peak. With the warm weather turning to cooler temperatures with rain, trees are starting to lose their leaves in some locations as well. This weekend into next week would be a good time to take a fall foliage ride. This weekend is full of fun!
The Colonial Little Theatre presents “Dial M for Murder” on two weekends: October 12-14 & 19-21. This production tells the story of Tony Wendice and his wealthy wife, Margot, who now plans to murder. He arranges the perfect murder and blackmails a scoundrel he used to know. Unfortunately…the murderer gets murdered and the victim survives. But this doesn’t baffle the husband as he plots to have his wife convicted for the murder. Until a police inspector and a young man discover the truth.
Gloversville’s annual Fallfest will be on Saturday, October 13 from 12-4pm at Trail Station Park across from the Transit Facility. There will be pumpkin painting, bounce houses, face painting, potato sack races, three-legged races, hula hoop contest, egg races, music, vendors and more. Food will be available for purchase. The day will conclude with a children’s Halloween costume parade and trick or treating through the park at 4pm.
Come and enjoy the colors of autumn and the many events Fulton County has to offer.
