14 Things to do this Weekend (Oct. 31-Nov. 02)

image_pdfimage_print

Get a load of this: Sunday “rain and snow possible”! Let’s just pretend that not a single weatherperson reported that. I am 100% convinced if we continue to wear our shorts, the collective and combined power will trick Mother Nature into thinking it’s Spring or Summer. It will otherwise be a mild, but cool weekend in terms of temperature. Overnight/morning lows will deep close to or even past freezing, so be sure to bundle cleverly – as the day warms, you will want to strip some layers. Regardless, nothing stops greater New Bedford from heading out and enjoying our weekend!
