From 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. head to Plimoth Plantation for a FREE 17th century dance experience. Did you know the Pilgrims came out of a culture infused with dance?  From the countryside to the royal court, dancing was a common diversion. Plimoth Plantation invites you to come explore this oft-forgotten facet of 17th century life. Join costumed interpreters for an evening of music and merriment! We’ll start with the basics – learning the simple steps that are the building blocks of so many dances of the period. Then, we’ll put those steps together, learn some actual period dances, and dance to live music! This program is designed to be participatory and is appropriate for children ages 7 and up.For more information, call or visit www.plimoth.org. Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II is open through the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Weatherwise, Not Otherwise!

Have you ever looked at the weatherman on television with that blank stare, wondering what the difference is between the arrival of a high pressure area and a low pressure area, and whether or not to get the rain boots or the bikini out? Join meteorologist Rob Gilman, heard every day here on 95.9 FM WATD, for a course in weatherwiseness from 10-11am. Rob will walk through the basics of meteorology and the typical weather patterns that affect us here on the South Shore. And let’s face it – with yet another New England winter upon us, a little bit of this knowledge can go a long way! Registration is required. Register online or call 781-837-9400 to register by phone. For more information, contact: southshore@massaudubon.org. The fee is $5 for members, $8 for non-members. This event is for adults and older teens.
