Leaf Lookers your time is now!

Posted by

Hello and thank you for your eyes!   Here we are again coming into the Fall season in Abingdon, Virginia and the Fall festivities have officially begun.  At Mountain Empire Community College just up the road you will find the Homecraft Days festival where local artists and crafters are allowed to showcase their creations while folks enjoy local cuisine and good old bluegrass and old time music made by some of the best musicians around.  Here at Capo's we are raking the leaves and enjoying the pumpkin donuts and coffee by our neighbors at the Dunkin Deli while preparing for Halloween, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas.  It is hard to believe the year has come and gone so quickly.  Those wanting to take in some beautiful color need only drive a short ways up Route 58 toward Whitetop Mountain and there they will find the gorgeous reds, yellows and oranges that make this region a true gem to behold this time of year.  Hope you will take the time to come see us this Fall and say hello.  Enjoy the season and keep on playing that good old music!
