Welcome to fall, Phoenix! What better way to celebrate than hitting the town and enjoying arguably the best season of the year. While the weather may not be giving us that fall breeze that we dream of, that doesn’t mean we can’t get in the pumpkin mood. From a sangria tasting to a pumpkin carving class, this week is packed with can’t-miss events. Note: Most event descriptions courtesy of event hosts and edited for clarity.
