The Holidays are upon us. Halloween is just a week away. November is Native American Heritage Month. Thanksgiving, spending time with family and friends, eating lots of food, and then before you know it, Christmas lights are going down and you find yourself celebrating the 2020 New Year. It can be stressful if you let it.

Take a deep breath and relax. There are a lot of fun things to do this season. Come on to Etowah Mounds and kick off Native American Heritage Month on November 2nd, from 6 pm till 9 pm, with a fun and educational hayride. Enjoys some snacks and some stories. Then you can think about getting things ready for all the other holidays, the decorations, parties, and gifts. Then, as this year ends and a new one starts again, think about joining us for a short hike in the cold, followed by hot chocolate, coffee, and some snacks.

Make sure to keep an eye out for our 2020 programs as they are slowly getting posted om the state's event calendar.

Oct. 4 Leaf Watch Update -- We're looking forward to slightly cooler weather this weekend, which should help bring out more fall color. Right now, even the mountains are predominantly green. Some Poplars are showing golden-yellow leaves (or dropping early) and some Sourwoods are beginning to turn deep red. Otherwise, it's the pretty fall wildflowers providing the best hues right now.

Instagrammers, tag @GaStateParks and #GaLeafWatch for a chance to be featured on Leaf Watch.

Use GaStateParks.org/LeafWatch to find the top 10 fall-color parks, campsites, cabins, festivals, hayrides, hikes and more.

Keep your eyes open and smile.

A new set of programs at Etowah Mounds, this year, features Native American Stories, Animal Puppets, puppet making, and story telling. It' geared towards the young, but fun for all.

This sock puppet is Hans Schwarmer, the Interpretive Ranger's puppet friend. The puppet shows are free, but there is a small extra fee if you want to do the puppet making portion of the program and make your own puppet friend.

Keep an eye open for the next scheduled Saturday show. Space is limited in the theater, so you'll need to register for the show, especially if you want to do the puppet making program to learn about making a puppet and telling a story.
