Weekend Calendar: Live Large with Westonpalooza

Wednesday, October 12. This tree was ready for Westonpalooza but sadly the rain got the leaves today.

This is going to be a very selfish post. There is so much going on this weekend that even google calendar is like “whaaaaa?” and I’m just going to use this post to write it all out. I will be totally amazed if I manage to do it all, but here’s trying. Westonpalooza:


Friday, October 14:

7:30-9 pm: Friday Night Lights: It’s a PINK OUT with the Weston Boys soccer team celebrating their seniors and hopefully beating the Waltham Hawks. 7 pm-ish at Proctor Field, Weston High School, 444 Wellesley Street. You can read more here.

Saturday, October 15:

10 am: Weston Police Relief Association 5K. Online registration is closed but if you show up early, let’s say 9 am, you do it onsite. Town Hall, Weston. Afterward, food trucks. You can read more here. You can also watch the Wes-TEN show on the subject here.

11 am: WCCA Mini-Marathon. Instead of 26 miles, they’ll be doing 10 miles. Oh, just kidding. Shorter races for shorter people. You can read more here. Food and crafts and fun stuff. Also, cone with a cop since there will be lots of cops around after the race. Eat fast before Knox gets it.

9:30 am: There’s a favorite 5K of mine called the Scarecrow Race in Lincoln. I am signed up for the sixth year. I may or may not go. You should go. It is one of the prettiest races there is and supports my second favorite land trust, Lincoln Land Conservation Trust. More info here.

10:30 am: Blessing of the Animals at First Parish Church. Bring only animals you actually know–please no coyotes or deer from your backyard. Take a photo; bring that instead. You can read more here.
