Happening This Weekend - 8/10/2018

This weekend is  August's 2nd Saturday in Beacon, which means the galleries in town unveil new exhibits that (usually) last through the month.

This 2nd Saturday is big because 26 locations on Main Street join in, thanks to Windows on Main Street now in its 13th year. Windows on Main St. is the annual event that turns Main Street into an outdoor art gallery. A Little Beacon Blog is a proud media sponsor of this event, and you can find out more about Windows on Main Street in our article here

As your are out and about, take photos of storefront windows you see, and tag us @alittlebeacon! Light up Instagram with what you find!

Let's see what else is going on this weekend...
