We wrote this ahead of Snowmageddon, keeping our electronic fingers crossed that (A) the forecasts were wrong, or (B) it all melts really, really fast.

Let’s all hope for the best–a great run for Anything Goes at Morristown High, and a great St. Patrick’s Parade on Saturday!

And of course, please enjoy all the other stimulating adventures scheduled across Greater Morristown this weekend.

UPDATE: We tip our toques to the meteorologists. (Blame the messengers!) Call ahead for EVERYTHING to make sure your event has dug out from the snow.

Scroll down for details, and check back here for any cancellations. Peruse our handy calendar for even more activities–and add your own events, too!
