20 Things To Do This Weekend (June 13-June 15)

Grrrrr. Looks like more rain. The good news is it’s just for Friday and a quick morning shower on Saturday. Don’t get us wrong – rain is good. It’s not a bad thing. If it could just rain up to the minute and event starts and then continue when it’s over then all would be well. It’s a real bummer when weeks or even months out, you plan and prepare for an event only to have it cancelled. Nevertheless, temperatures will be dandy and conducive to participating in the many goings-on in the South Coast and beyond. So let’s get out there and enjoy!

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!
