As Montgomery County finally enters the “YELLOW” phase and Governor Wolf’s stay-at-home order expires, we thought it was time to bring back our Weekend Picks of some things to do this weekend! Local businesses are starting to expand their offerings, and we’re so excited to support our community and see some friendly faces. (Even if they’re behind masks!)
Of course, we encourage you to make decisions that fit your family’s situation and follow safety guidelines.
Here are just a few suggestions of things to do:
