Newton Family February Ski Vacation to the Alps

Newton dad, Randy Friedman, of Seven Travel has lined up a family ski vacation to the Alps over February school break. Come join other Newton families and friends as you head to Innsbruck, Austria February 15-22, 2019!

Great skiing, scenery, sightseeing, shopping and much more. Skiers and non-skiers alike will have a blast visiting this historic cultural Capital of the Tirol.

Calling all runners, joggers and walkers!

Come for the run, stay for the fun!

We encourage parents and children to sign up for the Newton Highlands Village Day 5K. It’s a low-key, family-friendly run starting and ending at the Hyde Center in Newton Highlands. Many kids from elementary school to high school run their first 5K at this event which is such a great accomplishment. (It’s also fun to watch kids trying to out sprint their parents at the finish!)

Village Day in the Highlands follows at 11:00 am with all sorts of great activities — from bands to food to booths, face painting and more. Registration is $30.00 per adult, $15.00 per child.

Register online by clicking this link: villageday5k.racewire.com. Online registrations before May 28th are guaranteed a t-shirt in their requested size. Contact Maureen Oates at villageday5k@gmail.com if you have any questions! Happy run!

Kids PMC Ride

The Newton Kids PMC Ride is back and better than ever! Get your bike ready to roll for this fantastic event. Rider and volunteer check-in begins at 8:00 am. Two-wheeled riders will zoom around a one-mile loop on Wells Avenue in Newton as many times as they can from 9:00 – 10:00 am. The 3-wheeled and balance bike crowd will tear it up on a separate tot course.

Be sure to stick around for the POST-RIDE PARTY starting at 10:00 am. There will be food, face painting, bike decorating, raffles, and more. This is a great way to get kids involved in raising money for an amazing cause. All proceeds go towards cancer research and patient support at the Jimmy Fund and Dana Farber.

This year there will be a new format. Tour de Newton Magical Mystery Tour will have 4 start locations (Newton Centre, West Newton, Newtonville and Waban),  a contra tour,  and a petite tour. Each bike route will travel to several other villages, experience fun surprises, see hidden Newton treasures and back roads and then lead to an 11:00 am rally at Newton City Hall with all the riders and birthday wishes for Bike Newton, that turns 10 years old this year. Return when you wish or with a ride leader to your start location to finish by 12:30. As always, the rides are guided, family friendly, no rider left behind.

While the tour is in action, City Hall will be busy with a new event for cyclists who aren’t yet road ready, #BikeHappyKids. This event will include leveled ride areas aimed at teaching skills, building confidence and having fun. There will be inclusive elements such as balance bikes and (hopefully) adaptive bikes. There will also be demonstrations of different styles of bikes, useful accessories and information on biking gear that makes biking safer and easier.
