Weekend Happenings; 9/13-9/15

Friday the 13th has a pretty bad reputation. For most, it signifies a day where you’ll be extra careful! Watch out for black cats crossing your path, and avoid walking under any ladders that might be lying around. If you’re superstitious already, you’ll be pleased—or, more likely, pretty terrified!
Now that we’ve set the mood, what is so spooky about this month’s most unlucky day? In addition to it being Friday the 13th, it’s also a rare, full Harvest Moon! It has been 19 years since there was a nationwide Harvest Moon, and there won’t be another one until 2049. That being said, here’s a list of things to do on this interesting weekend:
