It's the first weekend of November and there's some events on the calendar that remind us that the cold and snow are coming and the holiday season. Below you will find the when and where for some of our events picks, including a chance to properly throw out electronics and buy some some ski or skate gear, but there's a lot of other events going on this weekend in Peabody and the nearby area of the North Shore.
To see more events and activities going on beyond what's listed here, check our events calendar for a complete list.
Remember, each week Peabody Patch’s “Weekender” planner brings you a quick guide to local events and activities.
