Looking For Fun This Long Holiday Weekend?

We're so lucky to live in a place that offers abundant opportunities to enjoy activities both indoors and out, no matter the season! Here are some ideas to keep you busy this weekend.

Owl Prowl at the Stevens-Coolidge Place in North Andover, Sunday from 7-9 pm. Participants will hike through the property in search of screech owls and great horned owls with the help of a knowledgeable guide. Flashlights should have a red cloth rubber banded over them so as not to disturb the animals, though there is something to be said for the magic that happens when you walk through the woods in darkness. Owl Prowls will be held rain, snow or moonshine. For more info https://rem.ax/2mnsftU

New Car? RV? Tent? You can take a look at all your options in one place - the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.  Both the International Auto Show and the Boston RV & Camping Expo are at the BCEC through Monday.  Browse, dream, grab a snack or drink. Don't forget your checkbook!
