As long as Mother Nature cooperates, the annual Winter Carnival will take place on Saturday, January 28, 2012. This annual event has only been canceled once, so we're hoping for a little cold and a little snow to get the show started at the Bartlet Mall in Newburyport.
The free event is hosted by the Newburyport Parks Commission and Newburyport Youth Services.
Here's a great opportunity to hit the beach and learn a fun new skill with family members. There you can check out and try striper fishing in the surf. Area fishermen will be available Saturday mornings in June to teach the next generation of surfcasters the finer points of surfcasting at Crane Beach.
The Trustees of Reservations are looking for a few good fishermen to donate their time to inspire the next generation of surfcasters to take up a rod and reel at Crane Beach. To volunteer, or for more information, please contact Garry Dow.
The Trustees of Reservations invites you and your family to help plant flowers and vegetables in our magical children's garden. Learn how to grow plants and take one home for your own backyard. Great for families.
