Suzanne Wilson’s best bets
Shelburne Falls is one charming place. And it should be in its glory all day Saturday when it hosts RiverFest, an annual celebration of the Deerfield River and the surrounding countryside, featuring music, art, food, dancing, trolley rides, original theater — and the Frog and Flower Parade at 12:30, which is open to all. For more information, visit www.shelburnefalls.com.
ANOTHER GOOD BET
The Friends of Forbes Library marks a big one — its 20th Northampton Garden Tour — Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Always enjoyable and inspiring, and it raises money for books, equipment and programs at the library. Tickets, $15 in advance and $20 on the day of, are available at Forbes Library, Cooper’s Corner, Bay State Perennial Farm, Hadley Garden Center, and State Street Fruit Store.
