Fall Fun–Autumn Arrived September 22!

Autumn is such a wonderful season in East Texas. It affords us much cooler weather, which in turn brings out the best in the area. Lots of outdoor activities and of course, the wonderful outdoor fireplace chats.  The Treehouse is also a great place to “hang out”! Let’s get started on the things to do in the are the next few weeks!

The East Texas State Fair begins the 23rd of September and runs until October 1! It is what you think a fair should be-with food, rides and those carneys!!

 The Park of East Texas, Inc. is organized to create commerce, celebrate heritage, and promote agriculture and education through activities and functions of the East Texas State Fair and Academic Rodeo. The Park is committed to providing quality, family-friendly entertainment, while creating social, educational, and cultural experiences.

Downtown Tyler Film Festival is a celebration of storytelling through film in East Texas. We accept and show short films from all around the world, but we have a special fondness for local independent works             About DTFF

Downtown Tyler Film Festival was founded in 2011 as a venue for encouraging local filmmakers to hone their craft and introducing local cinephiles to new storytellers. We care deeply about putting on a quality festival that caters to filmmakers and cinephiles alike. Our festival is laid back and film-focused. Viewings take place at the Liberty Hall theater, with additional receptions and gatherings held around the square.

There are also a few other things going on that weekend! A couple of runs ! Bringing a half marathon to Kiepersol Estates. For half marathon runners the route will only be in the vineyard the last quarter mile to the finish line. 5k and 10k participants will enjoy a more scenic, yet challenging, route through the estates and vineyard, however, less than 50% of either race will be on trail. Runners will get the best of both worlds! Be prepared for relaxing and enjoyable post-race festivities, including the pouring of Kiepersol’s own wine. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Mane Mission to register click here   https://www.active.com/tyler-tx/running/distance-running-races/corkscrew-half-marathon-10k-and-5k-2017
