Pumpkin offerings


My fridge already has a six-pack of pumpkin ale sitting in it. While I enjoyed the warmth of summer, as soon as I saw the seasonal offerings hit shelves, my mind immediately went to all of the possibilities this fall will hold. It's going to be a busy season; you can practically feel it in the air.

One of the most noticeable parts of fall is the launch of the new season for many Rochester organizations in the arts community. Almost like a starting pistol, the Clothesline Festival kicks off a 2015-16 season that is packed with theater, arts, dance, music, and film, and as can be seen in this publication, the community is growing at an exciting speed. Many new faces and companies are popping up this year.

In City's annual Fall Guide, our arts critics give their recommendations for the 2015-16 season — their picks for can't-miss art exhibits, theater productions, dance performances, music concerts, and films. These lists are by no means comprehensive, but rather ARE our critics' opinions for the events that every arts love in Rochester should mark on their calendar.

But there might be a point this fall WHEN you just want to get outside and just watch some things explode. We check out Grossmans Garden & Home's "Pumpkin Launcher" to learn more about that fall hobby punkin chunkin. And in an article for those who are just as excited for a good seasonal beer, City looked into three local breweries preparing for their own busy seasons.

As always, for up-to-date information, and complete listings for what is going on each week, be sure to check out the calendar section of City Newspaper, or visit the events section of our website at rochestercitynewspaper.com.
