I hope this Thanksgiving finds you and yours happy, healthy, and full of something delicious!

For those of you who aren’t wildly busy entertaining family this weekend – or for those of you who are and need a distraction – here’s a short list of ideas!

Sing-a-Long Mary Poppins
Friday, Nov 23 – Sun, Nov 25
Regent Theater | Arlington, MA 

I’m considering borrowing someone’s child so I can attend. To some it sounds raucous, to me it sounds like a wonderful chorus of “chim-chimeree” – “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” – “tuppence” – and other fun British words and syllables. What a great way to spend a couple hours with your family!


ZooLights at Stone Zoo
Nov 22 – Dec 31 from 5pm-9pm

ZooLights returns to Stone Zoo on Thanksgiving (Nov. 22)! This winter wonderland attracts thousands of visitors each year who get into the holiday spirit by strolling along tree-lined paths lit by thousands of twinkling lights. Upon entering the Zoo, guests will visit Yukon Creek, which not only features dazzling holiday lights but is also home to bald eagles, North American porcupines, reindeer and (new this year!) arctic foxes. Children will want to make sure they visit with Santa, who awaits their arrival in Santa’s Castle. Jolly Old St. Nick will be available for photos through Dec. 23. After visiting with Santa, enter a magical holiday world filled with fairy tale characters and dancing plush animals.
