  1. Thanks for sharing! I have off this Friday and wanted to do something fun with my kids. I think we’ll check out the Food Trucks and then the drive-in concrete at night with my husband. I’ve seen a lot of friends going to drive-in concerts and I’ve wanted to go to one too, so this works out perfectly. Thanks again!

  2. I have heard about the Brookfields Farmers Market but never made it out. I think my kids would love it! I remember my first bartering lessons were at the swap meet!

  3. Thank you so much for the sledding hill guide and map! I’m afraid the kids have been getting incredibly restless lately now that the holidays are over and along with the pandemic. Could use some good sledding time to get it out of their system!
