Want to know where we’re going each week so you can join us? We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them. Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

An annual holiday tradition for families! Come wander through the first floor of Ringwood Manor, beautifully decorated for the holidays!

Children are given scavenger hunts and can search for a variety of interesting objects throughout the house.
