Here are nine things to do with your family this weekend.
When/Where: Begins Friday, Dec. 2, 6 to 8:30 p.m., Tewksbury Public Library, 300 Chandler St., Tewksbury
Why Go: Check out dozens of trees that have been decorated by local businesses and organizations. PLUS, you get to vote on which ones you like the best.
Why Go: Enjoy a slice of pie or a brownie a la mode the night of Tewksbury's Tree lighting. The Pie Social is a community event hosted by the members of Tewksbury Congregational Church. Doors are open before and after the Tree Lighting to serve you a piece of homemade pie or enjoy a brownie made from scratch and cocoa or coffee.
When/Where: Friday, Dec. 2, 7 p.m., Town Common, Tewksbury
Why Go: This year's event will follow a slightly different schedule, as the lights on the common will be lit at the start of the festivities, right at 7 p.m. The event will feature the Swinging Seniors Chorus, who will perform "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," "Deck The Halls," "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Here Comes Santa Claus" and "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." Library Director Diane Giarusso will also be on-hand to read "Twas The Night Before Christmas." But, of course, the guest of honor for the Lighting of the Common will be Santa Claus. Jolly Old St. Nick will arrive on a rather large red "sleigh" courtesy of the Tewksbury Fire Department.
Why Go: Kick off your holiday season with the St. William Christmas Fair. Get yourself into the Christmas spirit and take care of some of your shopping away from the hustle and bustle of the malls.
