Don't you just love this time of year?  Yes it's crisp and cool, but it's also filled with excitement for the upcoming holidays and events. In Wellesley and the local area, we have many events that have become Holiday Traditions:

* Thanksgiving Day is a given...the Wellesley High School VS Needham High School football game! This is always a great much pride in each of the schools and battling for the bragging rights in the Metrowest area.

* New this year..The 5K Turkey Trot, taking place Nov 22nd. and is a Run Against Cancer event. The Turkey 5 will start and end at Linden Square, heading through the Wellesley College campus and a mini-version of the famous Boston Marathon Scream Tunnel in between.

* The Wellesley Marketplace- a collection of 170 shopkeepers and artists that are showcased to more than 2,200 holiday shoppers each year. This wonderful collection features gifts for the home, boutique style children's apparel, toys, gourmet treats, artisan jewelry and other specialty merchandise. This event is  Nov 23rd at 9:00am at the Wellesley Middle School.
