On Friday, December 9, come listen to some live holiday tunes at DCR’s Mount Greylock State Reservation from 6:30 to 8 p.m.   A free, fun and interactive holiday performance will be given by Richard Fabozzi, a Berkshire-based entertainer, who features impressions of Dean Martin, Elvis Presley, Jimmy Durante, Bing Crosby and others.  This show is entertaining for all ages and generations, and participation is optional.  Refreshments will be available for purchase. 

On Saturday, December 10 from 2 to 3 p.m., join a DCR park ranger for a tour of the Charles River Dam, the facility that protects the neighborhoods of Cambridge and Boston’s Back Bay from flooding by the Charles River. The tour will be meeting at Paul Revere Park, at the flagpoles, just below the Charlestown Bridge and City Square.

On Sunday, December 12, head down to Massasoit State Park at 4 p.m. for the Full Moon Hike.  This full moon is known by many names, such as: Oak Moon, Cold Moon, Frost Moon, Winter Moon and Long Night’s Moon.  This full moon is special, as is the only night of the month in which the moon remains in the sky from sunset to sunrise.  While you enjoy the changes in landscape that night brings, don’t forget to take in the inspiring views of Lake Rico, as the sun sets over the white pine trees. Absorb the peace, tranquility and beauty of the forested trails after sunset.

Bring water and flashlight, wear good hiking shoes, and dress for the weather. Hike is about 3 miles long and appropriate for adults and children 10+. Meet at the main parking lot at 1361 Middleboro Avenue, East Taunton. Rain, snow, or icy trails will cancel. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Please call (508) 866-2580 x162 to pre-register or for more information.
