This past week brought the fall equinox and the weekend ahead has us officially in the throngs of October. The season of change can be seen both in and outside our walls as we polish and finalize for the opening of our clubhouse, and as we prepare to welcome our first residents soon after! We hope youâ€™ll connect with our team and stop in to see the exciting changes unfolding at Onyx.
In tandem with onsite developments, thereâ€™s change all around as the season of harvest swoops in with its crisp nights and vibrant colors. With it, Edina and surrounding communities come together, seizing each opportunity we have to enjoy one another and to celebrate the beauty of the outdoors before weâ€™re experiencing them through thick, bundled layers. Thereâ€™s no shortage of opportunity to get out and engaged, and whether youâ€™re looking to enjoy a Brunch and Fall Colors Cruise on nearby Lake Minnetonka or to experience the sweet bite of fall at a neighboring apple orchard, youâ€™ll find this and more not too far from home.
If the season spurs you to mix and mingle, itâ€™s a quick trip north to break bread with family and friends. Mill City celebrates heritage and all things grain on Saturday with the return of its annual Bread Festivalâ€”inviting guests to sample the wares of renown, local bakers, to savor the sweet sounds of live music, and to enjoy art of all fashion. Think of it as your morning carb-load for a day of adventure and fun!
From there, consider a visit to Rummageâ€”an all-weekend event where local and national vendors and artisans will join together for performances, craft beer, games, and more. If fall triggers your winter-lust and the need for downhill wind-lashings on your face, you can share the sentiment with fellow enthusiasts at the annual Fall Fair and Ski & Snowboard Swap, hosted by The Alps Chalet and beginning this Thursday, September 29th.
While Sundayâ€™s prime for sticking close to home and enjoying a libation, matinee, or a stroll through Edina, we hope youâ€™ll consider beginning your weekend in vibrant, fall fashion by venturing a bit further out and experiencing the wonders around us. Youâ€™ll appreciate the breath of fresh air and get a feel for the many faces of community weâ€™re so fortunate to enjoy!
