What do to this spring weekend? If weather cooperates (rain is predicted) sports enthusiasts may enjoy watching Westwood High School's spring sports teams warm up for their season with a slew of scrimmages in lacrosse, baseball, and softball. 

For a little motivation to exercise yourself, join the League School of Greater Boston's bike-a-thon. There's also a virtual option!

Open Fields puts on a musical performance close to home. Or you might find the trip worthwhile to wander over to Somerville for a listen to a Grammy award winning guitarist.

Have questions for the candidates before casting your vote in Westwood's upcoming election? Get them answered on Sunday at a candidate forum hosted by the League of Women Voters of Westwood/Walpole/Dedham.
