Things To Do around Westwood This Weekend: Friday, Nov 18 - Sunday, Nov 20
This weekend's events ushers in what feels like the winter holidays. Visit the 41st Annual Holly Berry Fair in Walpole, the Snowbound Expo in Boston, and the Magic of Lights at Gillette Stadium.
A little too fast forward for you? Don't worry - you can still hit the pause. Celebrate November's holiday with a Thanksgiving Food and Wine Pairing.
Local theatre also offers a number of options. Shrek plays in Needham, and the 24 Hour Play Festival is being performed in Walpole.
This Saturday, it's easy to do good and make an impact - grab a few items from home or the store and help replenish the supplies of Westwood Food Pantry. The Scouting for Food Drive, organized by the Cub Scouts, offers convenient ways to donate. Drop off your donations in a bin located just inside the doors of Roche Bros in Westwood, or use the drive-through at Thurston Middle School.
