To Do in Columbus this Weekend (Oct. 27-29)
It’s Friday, which means it’s time to review just a few of the things going on in Columbus this Halloween weekend. I will be watching my daughter in her first big role on the high school stage tonight and tomorrow evenings (details below if you’re interested), and of course tuning in to the big game tomorrow afternoon. Sports, theater, giving back, costume parties, a real estate tour—there’s something here for everyone. Have a great weekend!
