Best Bets This Week


first_night_Talbot_13Downtown Easton is gearing up for First Night Talbot. Festivities begin at 6 pm on Monday with plenty of children’s attractions: jugglers, Jazz for kids, children’s theatre and crafts, and culminating with the “Midnight in the Mid-Atlantic” Crab Drop Celebration and  parade of Dragon Wing’s Sea Creature Puppets.   Adult entertainment includes short films at the Academy Art Museum and reggae music with Mama Jama at the Avalon Theatre.

Weather- wise,  looks like Friday is your best day for a nature walk. Winter is a perfect time for bird watching – don’t forget your binoculars.  Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, Pickering Creek , Tuckahoe State Park and the adjacent Adkins Arboretum come to mind.

And if you’re planning to attend the upcoming War of 1812 Ball at the Historical Society of Talbot County or any other costume events, there will be a workshop Saturday morning on how to use your own clothes, sew, or advise on  purchasing. Wonder if that includes dance lessons?
