Here in Temecula, there are a couple of telltale signs of autumn which are unique to our hometown and probably familiar to many of you. I’ve made up a list of a few of my favorites.
It may be just down the road, but Galway Downs Equestrian Center, located in wine country, seems like a world away with its beautiful scenery and rustic charm.

Things are getting just a little bit spookier in wine country this month, but not too scary that you can’t bring the kids, as Lorimar Winery hosts two Halloween activities geared at bringing the whole family together for some festive fun.
Put a few horses in your Halloween this season as Galway Downs presents the inaugural year of their Fall Equestrian Fest and Haunted Horse After-party.
