It’s February break for Southborough and Northborough public schools, this week. That means a lot of families have skipped town. But it also means there will be more kids around during the day.

(And it means I may not be posting as frequently as usual.)

For families who didn’t bolt – it’s probably too late to sign kids up for any week long camps or clinics. But you can find some options for area day camps and classes here. (That includes one at Chesnut Hill Farm that I forgot about until Saturday.)

There are additional activities in Town throughout the week for kids/families (and seniors). Here are highlights of what’s happening.

[Note: The highlights don’t include ongoing weekly programs. For those listings and more, check the Event Calendar.]
