We have been absolutely spoiled this fall; we’re nearly one week into November and yet there’s still no snow on the ground. The Holiday season is just around the corner and while it may not be in full swing yet, with weather like this, how could we stay inside?!  So in light of embracing every glorious snow-free moment, here’s our LUX Must-Do List for November: 

High Street Living:
All is Bright: This family friendly event will be in full swing to welcome the Holiday Season to High Street on Saturday Nov. 22. Featuring live music, shinny hockey games on the street, local market vendors, and bonfires (complete with s’more supplies). This event boasts a traditional holiday light up at 6pm and SO much more. We’ll be keeping you up to date on all the event details via our Facebook and newsletter.
