Note: Bradley Palmer State Park has multiple entrances, for this event you must enter from the Highland Street entrance just opposite the Pingree School in Hamilton, MA. Turn right by the wading pools and go past them, down a road to your left which will lead to a parking area. We’ll be set up near that parking area. Map & directions: http://goo.gl/maps/GViW
