Five things to do in Newton this weekend

Happy Independence Day, Newton!

With the holiday on a Thursday, there’s a de facto long weekend ahead. But with many people typically out of town for July 4, there aren’t many events happening.

But there are a few. Some music, some dancing and a farmers market await you. Or you can stay home and relax. Summer has no rules.

Here are five things to do in Newton this weekend,
