Update: POSTPONED. Celebrate Weston, Spring Fling and Kids Business Fair Now May 21

Due to forecast, all eventa on Saturday May 20 are moved to May 21, except Knotweed Battle which moves to May 26.


Okay, folks, Saturday is insane. While all these events are in the Weston Owl calendar, here’s a brief (haha) reminder of all the fun stuff you can do around town this Saturday unless you are in Long Island all weekend long watching soccer games #4,543 and 4,544 of the spring (ahem).

Also, it must be noted that Friday is glomming on to Saturday by featuring a Book and Bake Sale at the Weston Public Library. Get there first or risk having everything already bought and eaten by the Owl who does not bake but supports every single bake sale she can. Oh yes, also books. Friends of Weston Public Library, Spring Book & Bake Sale, Friday, May 19 from 10 am-5:30 pm.


So now for the actual crazy day: Saturday, May 20. At the moment, I see a 50% chance of showers on Saturday so that will be exciting as we decide whether or not we move to May 21.

+ 8:30 am Smiles for 3.1 Miles Memorial Run for Diego Summers. This 5K was started last year by now-senior Aydin Abramson to raise money in memory of his friend Diego Summers, a Field School 5th-grade student who died from cancer seven years ago. You can read about the event here. Event will be held at Weston High School.


+10 am-12 pm: Battle knotweed. We shall not be vanquished! Woodland School conservation land. Read about it here. POSTPONED

+ 11 am to 2 pm: Spring Fling: this is the annual fundraiser for Camp No Limits run by the awesome high school students (go ‘cats!) Let your kids loose upon Town Green where they will be face-painted, gamed and burgered. All proceeds go to Camp No Limits. Read more here. POSTPONED

+ 11 am to 3 pm: Weston-Wayland Rotary Club’s Children’s Business Fair at Knox Park (new location this year across from Weston Fire Department). Awesome short entrepreneurs selling their ideas, wares and dinosaur soap. You can read more about the event here. POSTPONED


+ 11 am to 3 pm: Celebrate Weston by checking in with lots of our town organizations around the Josiah Smith Tavern. Buy Weston Boosters stuff (go ‘cats!) and tell WFTA we’re awesome. We know but we always like to hear it. More information on this event on the town webpage. My favorite part of the write up is the term “newly-enhanced” Town Center. It’s enhanced, yes, by no more utility poles and granite curbs and milions of dollars of beautification and Intersection of Doom–who misses curb-gate? I do. That was fun.


+ 11 am to 3 pm: Visit the Weston Historical Society exhibit “History Under One Roof” about all the patriots, card players, drinkers and then the Jones Family who lived in or visited the JST, not all at the same time. Quaff a beer at the bar. Josiah Smith Tavern. Read more here.

+ 11 am to 1 pm (2 pm end to barn sale): Tour the hisTORYcal Golden Ball Tavern Museum for an open house and then peruse their Barn Sale for goodies. There may still be some flowers around from the Country Garden Club, I’m not sure. Find out more about this event here.

+ 11 am to 2 pm: MYCHIP – the Masonic Youth Child ID Program at the Weston Fire Department, sponsored the Westn Emergency Reserve Corps. Created by the Masons of Massachusetts (https://www.mychip.org/), the program makes kits for families containing the following materials about each participating child (recommended for ages 2+): VIDEO: A brief video interview that could be quickly distributed to the media in order to reach a huge audience. FINGERPRINTS: Fingerprinting is a well-known means of identification. Resourceful parents keep fingerprints available should the need arise. You can pre-register for this event here. If you have questions about the program, please contact Marilyn Savage (marilynesavage@gmail.com).

+ 7:30 pm: Weston Friendly Society presents A Chorus Line. Lots of dancing and fun–one of the best shows for all-out entertainment value. You can find out more about this event here. Held at Town Hall Auditorium

Sunday, by comparison, is pretty tame. The highlighted event of the day is this one held at First Parish Church:

Printmaking Demonstration with Lynda Goldberg: Newton artist Lynda Goldberg will be visiting First Parish Church in Weston on Sunday, May 21 from 11:30-12:30pm for a printmaking demonstration. You can read more here.


Well, I’m tired. Party on, Weston, and celebrate, fling and shop! Remember that all town center businesses and restaurants will be open and eager to see you as well.

Go ‘cats!
