The weekend is here and Hamilton-Wenham Patch delivers you our “Get Out” weekend planner with a quick rundown on some weekend activity options in Hamilton and Wenham.
It’s shaping up to be one of the busiest weekends in the two towns in a very long time. So this week, more than ever, we encourage you to look past this weekend guide into our full calendar of events to find something to do, especially if nothing from our guide makes it on to your list.
