Five Things to Do in Newton This Weekend

This weekend is expected to bring a little rain (like every weekend lately) but it’s also promising sun and warmth, so it will be a mixed bag.

And it’s the weekend before Halloween, so there are lots of decorations and displays to check out when you’re traveling around the city. Make sure to be on the lookout Saturday for the kids decorating windows around the city.
