Find family fun that isn't too far from home! 

The Spencer Fair is opening its doors this weekend. Come on down with the family any time between 8 AM to 5 PM from September 3 to September 6.

Get ready to rock this Sunday!

Stay up late this Sunday at Ralph's Rock Diner. The diner will be blasting with music as four bands play on their patio. The line-up starts with Leiko, a group from Providence. They are followed by the Salem natives, the Bad Larrys.
