Welcome, dear readers, to ACE's annual fall A&E Preview.

Summertime is ending, and as the leaves change colors, the air grows colder, and the students return to their classes, the Bluegrass region becomes alive with activity to keep you entertained throughout the autumn season.

So no more whining about how there's nothing to do around here. Read on: Every thing from pumpkin festivals to heavy metal rock shows, philharmonic orchestras to children's plays, the next three months of your life are neatly planned out in calendar form by the staff here at Ace Weekly.

To make things easier, some of the top events for next month are conveniently highlighted.
