Happening This Weekend 5/25/2018

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Main Street is open the whole way through, now that recent construction on the east end is finished, so you can drive through as you always have. But do pull over or simply walk to your favorite shopping destinations. Just follow A Little Beacon Blog's Shopping Guide! There are lots of new stores for you to discover.

Take a moment to give thanks to veterans on Monday during the Memorial Day Ceremony put on by the American Legion - Beacon Post, in the Memorial Building (same place where the indoor Farmers Market and bingo are held, near the Yankee Clipper Diner).
Sponsored by Antalek & Moore for car insurance.
