Many restaurants and businesses,  like Bedlam Book Café, the Queen's Cups, Worcester Wares, and many more will be featuring discounts, raffles, or even free giveaways. 

The Kelley Square tree lighting will take place at 5 PM. 


Whittle away the hours this Saturday!

Try your hand at a new hobby this weekend at Whittling Demo by artist Mark Brown at Artisans at Polly in Sutton. 

Stop by during Chain of Lights this Saturday any time from 10 AM to 4PM to observe and be amazed by an old art form. 


Start the celebrations early this year!

It may be the beginning of December, but it’s never too soon to think about the holidays. 

Join the town of Spencer for their Christmas Parade. The Town of Spencer Holiday Committee will put on quite a show this Saturday from 7 PM to 10 PM. The parade route starts at David Prouty High School. 


Santa Paws is coming to town! 

All your pets' tails will be wagging for the best Christmas card opportunity of the season.

Get into shape this weekend while skipping the workout!
