Your Guide to the Weekend – 9/4 through 9/7
What’s better than a weekend? An extended weekend!
The visitor center will be closed Monday for Labor Day, but we will be back open at 8 a.m. on Tuesday. Come see us at 100 N. Broadway St. in Seymour where you can buy a 2020 Seymour Oktoberfest shirt to support the Seymour Noon Lions Club.
With an extra day, Jackson County has some fun in store, and we thought it would be great to put it all in one place.
