The days are shorter, the nights are crisp, and the kids head back to school. It must be fall. And let’s not forget all the beautiful autumn colors either, or the steady diet of pumpkin lattes you’ll be indulging in until Christmas time. Fall is also a time of outdoor festivals and events. From autumn craft fairs and fall foliage festivals to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and Madison County Covered Bridge Festival, communities across the U.S. celebrate the arrival of fall with all sorts of special events -and chances are participants are enjoying themselves with a piping hot cup of cider in one hand and a cider donut in the other. However, amidst the leaf peeping and apple picking there are two events in the fall that stand above the rest: Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Oktoberfest
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual international health campaign to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds for research. High schools throughout the nation will be hosting fundraising events. Car washes, bake sales, silent auctions, walks, runs, and bike rides are just a few of the creative Pink Out fundraising events students have organized to increase awareness of the disease. These annual events help to educate young women about breast cancer, and at the same time they create a sense of responsibility, togetherness, and school unity. You can support the cause with one of our custom designed Breast Cancer Awareness t-shirts. If you’re participating in a walk or race, we can customize the shirt with a name, slogan, and date.
Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival held in Munich, Germany, but almost every town in America has a variation of the beloved Bavarian event. In other words, you don’t need to book a flight on Lufthansa to enjoy knockwurst, bratwurst, entertainment, and dancing. And let’s not forget those traditional German pretzels, either. While dirndl dresses and lederhosen are the traditional style of dress at Oktoberfest, you can show off your festival spirit with one of our customized Oktoberfest t-shirts. While you’ll probably never put on a pair of lederhosen again, you can enjoy an Oktoberfest t-shirt long after the schnitzel is gone and the dancing is over.
