This was a shortened list. The wine festival is included in our fall festival roundup from Thursday's Applause section; see it here -- http://chronicle.augusta.com/things-do/applause/2012-10-10/find-festival... -- and has been in our Wine Time column for several weeks.

Thanks for letting us know about the Mule Days event! We'll add both to this list as well.
