It’s winter in New England, which means the days are short and the temps are low. If you’re not careful, it can also mean you come down with a severe case of cabin fever.
To get you out of the house and feeling good, we at Masiello Employment assembled a list of some uniquely fun winter activities in (and within 20 miles of) our lovely hometown of Keene, New Hampshire, and all within the month of February:
- Step Afrika! This rousing dance performance promises to have guests dancing in their seat. Friday, 2/8/19. 6:30pm. The Colonial Theatre. Keene.
