It's the final weekend before Christmas. With less than ten days to go, depending on how you look at it, it might be the most wonderful time of the year or the most stressful. For those who choose to soak up all that the season has to offer, there is plenty of festive fun. Folkways Wines is hosting an Italian wine tasting on Saturday afternoon. Santa himself will be making a visit to North Salem, via a parade through town led by the Croton Falls Fire Department.  

The Lewisboro Land Trust is hosting not one but two hikes for kids and families. Muscoot Farm is hosting a holiday lights show and North Salem High School athletes will take to the basketball court and the ice rink. That and so much more are in our weekend roundup. What will you get up to this weekend?
