Happening This Weekend - 1/20/2017

If you're wondering where everyone went this weekend, know that many have headed to Manhattan, Poughkeepsie, NY,  Wyckoff, NJ, or the giant Women's March on Washington, DC. If you tried to buy markers for your adult coloring addiction at Rite Aid and they were sold out, that's probably because a lot of women (and men) have been making posters to take with them to the marches. No matter what your political opinion is of this Inauguration Day, the number of women who have organized and are marching around the world for various reasons is pretty monumental.

If you need a free bottle of Champagne to help get you through these times, then you're in luck, because Bellus on Main is having a "Guess How Many Candies Are In The Jar?" Valentine's Day contest. Scroll down for details!

Here is your easy access to planning. These are weekend dates pulled from some of A Little Beacon Blog's 10 Things To Do In Beacon Guides, so be sure to check them during the week.
There is more parking than you think!
Especially in the large, free lots on the East End of town, near the mountain. We've got pictures.
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.
