When the sweet, sweater coziness of Autumn arrives the race season is not far behind. There are 10 races and parades between September 15th and December 2nd that impact different parts of the city. Be aware that easy errands on a Saturday may require some detouring. I know that If I am aware of impacts in advance it is much simpler to adjust, but when I am surprised by a detour, I get irritated. There are a lot of great happenings in our City in the next few months, and they are worth braving easy breezy detours and moderate traffic.
