The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler — but the fall social scene is as hot as last July’s heat wave. After a well-deserved summer hiatus, the area’s arts and entertainment venues are back in full swing, offering art exhibits, music, dance, comedy, theater, and film. And there are plenty of fall festivals, street fairs, arts and antiques shows, and other activities on tap in the region. We’ve put together a calendar of weekend events — more than 70 in all — taking place in the Valley between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. So forget the piles of leaves accumulating on your lawn — get out and have some fun!
