As the weather drops below 80 degrees and the leaves begin to fall, autumn is finally here, and so are several events celebrating the season.

At the Congregation Shearith Israel, the Preston Hollow Fall Festival and Truck Time on Sunday features everything from a shopping bazaar and plant sale to an obstacle course and bounce house. Texas kosher barbecue will be served, and local produce will be available for purchase. This family-friendly event costs $10 for adults and $5 for children over age 2. The fest is scheduled from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m., and you can get all the details here.

Runners take to Northaven Trail this Saturday for the Rock the Smile 5k benefiting the Smile for a Lifetime Foundation, which provides orthodontic treatment to those in need of financial assistance. After an opening ceremony at 9:30 a.m., runners line up near the Jewish Community Center of Dallas and race along the trail. Register for the 5k here.

If you’d rather stay inside, singer-songwriter Diana Jones, along with Hamp and Janet, are performing at Uncle Calvin’s Coffeehouse Friday night. Tickets cost $15-$18 and are available to purchase here.
