As Massachusetts and more importantly the Newburyport community begins to “reopen” and get used to our new normal, many events are beginning to come back and people are beginning to have the ability to get out in the community like we are used to. Things including; museums, cultural and historical facilities, and small guided tours are allowed to reopen now.  Below we have included some local events for everyone in the family to enjoy! We hope to see you all there this August.
