{Around Town} Holiday Happenings!

The holidays are no longer “around the corner”, they’re here.  Like it or not, Santa is arriving at malls all over the South Shore, stores are fully stocked  with wrapping paper, tags and bows, and Black Friday Ads are popping up all over Facebook.  There are LOADS of local events and festivities this time of year, from light displays, to story times, to lunches and special photo opps with Santa.  Check out our list below and mark your calendars!  We’ll be adding as we find new events, check back often!  (See individual links for more information).
