September is fading fast and that means the holiday season is within sight on the horizon. We look forward to that first cool weather in October for a great excuse to stroll around downtown Coral Gables.

Allow us to present the usual embarrassment of cultural riches in the coming days in our little city — this week’s list of Great Gables Events.
