Fiesta Friday

happy friday

Looking for something to do in the North Shore area this weekend? With the nice weather we’re expecting, it may be a good idea to go explore some of the area’s beautiful parks, hike one of the mountains further to the north in New Hampshire, or treat yourself to one of the ice cream stands that will be opening this weekend (a personal favorite– Hodgie’s– will finally be open on Saturday!) You should also browse below to see the additional activities planned for the weekend.

  • Throughout April there will be an art display at Carry Out Cafe located at 155 State Street. The theme of the show, titled “Drawn to the Game” is vintage baseball imagery. All artwork is done by local artist Joe Farnham. A reception will take place on Friday at 7:30pm where guests will get the chance to meet the artist and enjoy special stadium-themed snacks and beverages. Get more information here.
