This weekend is a holiday-palooza, with Christmas/seasonal parties, concerts, sales and activities, including the annual fly in by jolly old St. Nick. Here is a reminder of all that’s happening around town.

This is the first weekend since the Trustees launched this year’s Reindeer Quest for the month of December:

Wooden Reindeer at Chestnut Hill FarmReindeer Quest (Daily in December, Sunrise to Sunset) @ Chestnut Hill Farm: Free self-guided program. Grab your snow boots and get the family outside to discover our elusive herd of wooden reindeer found throughout the farm trails! See how many you can find and leave a bell around each one’s neck. Bells and directions can be found at the trailhead parking lot kiosk. Before you go, check out the Chestnut Hill Farm trails map here.
