Many of you asked me about the fall events on the Azores, so I made a sum­mary for you with the events occur­ring in Octo­ber. I have included inter­est­ing events from oth­er islands, too, not just Sao Miguel. I will be attend­ing all events on Sao Miguel, so please join me if you are in the area.
