Auburndale Village Day: A Family-friendly morning
Saturday, August 26 10 AM-12 PM
Auburndale Community Library
375 Auburn Street
The Auburndale Community Library is the center of activity for Village Day: Craft a watermelon out of paper. Paint a rock for the library's garden. Settle in for a story time at 11 AM for little ones. And if your kids (5 and older) don't have their own library cards yet, they can stop in, and become a card-carrying member of the best community library in Newton.
Just Next Door
327 Auburn Street
Just Next Door's Sidewalk Sale happens only once a year, and after getting a sneak peek at some of this year's sale items, we saw lots of great deals on seasonal merchandise like toys, home accessories, and clothing marked down 50%! Sale begins on Thursday August 24 and runs through Saturday the 26th.
Wally's Wicked Good Ice Cream
419 Lexington Street
Ice cream for breakfast? Heck, yeah! Summer's coming to close and we're not letting it go quietly. Wally's Wicked Good Ice Cream is opening early on Saturday for a little frozen goodness for breakfast. Cone or cup? Sprinkles? How about an ice cream sandwich cookie? It's all part of Wally's breakfast menu this Saturday. They'll be offering some other fun surprises, too, for Village Day.
