"Ain't no weekend like a long weekend." - Anonymous

It's another long weekend which means less alarm clock and more time to enjoy happenings around the county. It's time to soak up those outdoor vibes like this Red fox, a beautiful photo taken by Paulinskill River Photography.

Roy's Hall has a Sunday evening concert with Breabach, a contemporary folk act with deep roots in Highland and Island tradition. Centenary Stage Company presents The Ladykillers, a black comedy revolving around a sweet little old lady and a gang of criminal misfits wanting to involve her in a heist job. Though police are stumped, Mrs. Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse.

Get crafty with Brook making upcycled earrings at Gallery 23 or create a fairy dwelling at Well-Sweep Herb Farm.

While we can't predict the weather, we're sure you'll find something fun to explore!

Happy Long Weekend and Happy Wanderings!
