You're Invited to a Holiday Tree Lighting for the Whole Family Westport's Wakeman Town Farm's Tree Lighting has local soul. The farm committee brings in student singers and musicians from our local elementary schools to provide festive holiday music. This year, Broadway actress Susan Terry will sing a few holiday tunes and lead a festive sing-a-long. Volunteers pour hot cocoa and serve cookies and stoke up the bonfire for s'mores. As the sun goes down, the team lights the Tree, a tradition for three generations of the Wakeman family. Date is Fri. Dec. 7, starting at 4:30 p.m. Free and open to the public! Come one, come all to this wonderful community event! 134 Cross Highway, Westport.

Visit one of the oldest homes still standing in Fairfield and finally, have you always wondered about the yellow schoolhouse on Morningside Drive? Adams Academy was a private school from 1837-1867 and is rarely open to the public - now is your chance to see how students celebrated the holidays 180 years ago!
