Weekend Plans December 30th – January 2nd

Ridotto: New Year's Eve

Ridotto: New Year's Eve

If you haven’t already made plans for New Year’s Eve we’ve listed a few things of interest going on around town. Saturday looks particularly quiet with everyone laying low after Friday’s  festivities.  The forecast calls for cooler temperatures remaining in the 30’s for Thursdy and then getting into the low 40’s for Friday with partly cloudy skies. Saturday and Sunday will go up to the mid 40’s but there is a 40 % chance of rain as of now. Have a great weekend and a Happy New Year!
