Now that Labor Day is behind us, it's almost time to focus on the fall. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to trade in 100 degree days for chilly air and sweater weather. Plus, the fall is one of the best seasons for finding activities to do with the family. 

Here's what's going on this week in North Carolina. The Piedmont is hopping. Mountain and coastal folks, fill us in. It appears to be a slow week in your areas.
