Well, it finally looks like we’re going to get a break from all this weekend rain. I guess, I can stop work on that Ark that I was building. Even better is that this weekend will be the first weekend that will resemble a truly summer weekend. We’ll hit the 80s! There is quite a lot going on in the South Coast and beyond, now that warm weather is here to stay. People are planning events to keep those of us who enjoy seizing life, busy indeed!

As always, click on the title for more or detailed information on the event. Most of the events were pulled from our event calendar where you can find hundreds of local area events each month. The event calendar is FREE, so if you are a local business, and not taking advantage of FREE publicity, shame on you! Are you a local business and want to sponsor this high traffic, weekend guide? Contact info@newbedfordguide.com for more details. Have an event to add? Check out our tutorial. For more info, you can click on each title. Know of another event this weekend? Post a reply!
