Weekend Festivities

There’s still time to get in one last dose of Christmas cheer, if you’re so inclined.  Blithewold Mansions, Gardens and Arboretum in Bristol, RI will be decorated through January 5th celebrating the Van Wickle’s unique holiday family traditions. If you’re looking for a low-key and cozy date idea for this weekend, they are holding their last Christmas Sparkle outdoor concert Friday night from 6-8pm, complete with crackling bonfires, illuminated gardens, carolers, hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows in the enclosed garden and greenhouse. On Saturday, from 3 – 4pm there will be a Christmas concert by Make We Music. Break out that new matching scarf and glove set and head on over!
