Happening This Weekend - 3/17/2017

If you kept thinking yesterday was Monday, and you didn't know what day it was or where the week went, you're not alone. This storm really threw everything out of whack.

So... Now it's the weekend. Today is Friday. There's a dance party you should go to. Lots of other weekend dates have been pulled from some of A Little Beacon Blog's Things To Do In Beacon Guides, so be sure to check them during the week.
There is more parking than you think!
Especially the large free lots on the East End of town, near the mountain. We've got pictures.
Sponsored by Antalek and Moore for car insurance.
