Autumn Glory has come and Gone – Here Comes Winter!

Autumn Glory had perfect timing this year with the leaves in their peak of color. The weekend was a little overcast and chilly but still nice for the Autumn Glory Parade on Saturday in downtown Oakland. We saw our Senator, George Edwards, Delegate Wendel Beitzel, and the Golden Ambassador Art Rooney. This was my second Autumn Glory parade I had been to and I was so excited to take my 18 month old, Brody, to see the parade. However, after a long struggle he feel asleep for the entire parade! If you have never been to the parade, it is a blast. People come early in the morning to set up their food and chairs. Large gatherings can be seen up and down the streets of Oakland. There are balloon guys, my son adored his Diego balloon, bands from all over, Brenda’s Body Shop Thriller Dance, old tractors, and of course the Shriners on the crazy cars!
They changed next years date for the festival. So Autumn Glory 2010 will be October 6-10th.

We saw our first snowflakes this past weekend. Only a dusting, but it was still very cold! If you are coming up this weekend, we are going to have something like an Indian summer with highs on Thursday in the 60s.

One thought on “Autumn Glory has come and Gone – Here Comes Winter!”

  1. After finding your post I was wondering if you would be able to help me. I've been to Deep Creek last year for the Autumn Glory festival and that is why my Fiance and I want to get married up in Deep Creek. We thought your area was so beautiful in the fall. I read your profile and I noticed you've lived in that area for a while. I was wondering if you could answer couple questions for me. I was wondering if there was any community center/banquet halls or a country club for a reception. We already know we want to get married in the state park, but every house we've seen in the area hasn't really interested us. Is there a place you would recommend for a reception? I know this is kind of out of nowhere, but I would really appreciate your help. Thanks so much! You can contact my at Thanks!!!
