By October 8, 2012

Fall is here, and you can definitely feel it in the air. The cooler weather brings a full calendar though, and this week is a busy one in Charlotte.

The festival scene is packed this week, with four major events. The Carolina Renaissance Festival continues this weekend, there's a pair of cultural festivals - the Charlotte Latin American Festival Sunday and the Ciao, Italia! Festival Saturday, and a Charlotte favorite, the Time Warner Cable BBQ and Blues Festival kicks off Friday and continues into Saturday.

On the sports front, NASCAR drivers Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth make an appearance and the NASCAR Hall of Fame Tuesday, Thursday is Bojangles' Pole Night at the speedway, Friday night brings the Dollar General 300, and Saturday night hosts the Bank of America 500. For something a little different, check out the Charlotte Copperheads as they take on the Reading Rascals at Bojangles' Coliseum.
