Forget Phil. We Bostonians have a famous groundhog right in our own backyard. Before taking the kids to Drumlin Farm's Groundhog Day celebration on Tuesday, you may want to read Ms. G’s Shadowy Road to Fame, the story of how an intrepid group of local school kids helped a Drumlin Farm resident become the official state groundhog of Massachusetts.
Meanwhile, local college hockey fans are making predictions about which team will win the first round of the annual Beanpot Hockey Tournament on Monday. For our money, the Women's Beanpot on Tuesday is a better bet if you're planning to take the kids.
The rest of the week brings a wintry mix of nature programs, summer camp dreaming, and important conversations with teens. We're hoping it will also bring some fresh snow for sledding.
As always, keep your eye on the full Event Calendar for more great upcoming events.
