"Winter is not a season. It's a celebration." - Anonymous

Hey! Hey you! Are you looking for things to do this weekend, specifically winter things? Don't fret, take a peek at Warren County Wanderings, just like this little gray squirrel photographed by Warren County resident Charlie Fineran. Jump start your weekend with great tunes bound to warm you up and then head over to Hackettstown for their annual Winterfest. Or listen to the soulful sounds of Damn Tall Buildings performing during at Centenary Stage Company's January Thaw Fest.

While the calendar has been a little empty this month, rest assured it won't be that way for long! Happy Peeking and Happy Wanderings!
