You may notice the temperatures are getting a little cooler, which means fall is in the air. Across the Tennessee Valley, there are plenty of ways to welcome in the new season, from festivals to haunted houses. We made a list of events to make your fall planning a little easier. We will continue to add to the list throughout the season.
