    - As three-time Guiness World Record Holders, this husband and wife duo know how to impress a crowd with their yo-yo feats.

You'll see yo-yos attached to bouncy balls, yo-yos with 10-foot strings, and multiple yo-yos looping with hula hoops and unicycles.

  • | 1:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, exhibit, museum
    - Set against a backdrop of Framingham images and artifacts, this exhibit features fashions that will both please the eye and illuminate the lives of some very special Framingham women. We’ve chosen pieces that reflect the social mores, economic status and the personalities behind the ever-present decision we all face daily - what to wear?

    Did you know that you can read clothing like any other historical document? It’s simply a matter of understanding the language. We’ll illustrate this language as you compare the ethereal wedding dress worn by Anna Foster Haven in 1824 with the austere gown worn by the devout Mrs. Temple on her wedding day in 1772. We’ve set the stage for you to experience the intimate setting of an 1880s salon where Framingham women entertained their closest friends adhering to the international trends that dictated appropriate dress and décor. Experience the Roaring Twenties by reading an Art Deco inspired dress worn by a very independent local actress and theatre director.

    Location: Edgell Memorial Building – 3 Oak Street, Framingham, MA
    Parking: Please park on 3 Oak St. (street parking available) or in the Village Hall lot (2 Oak St.)

  • | 8:00pm - 10:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, guitar; holiday
    - Paul Richards (Los Angeles), Bert Lams (Belgium) and Hideyo Moriya (Tokyo), three wise men (from distant lands) with guitars, are gassing up the reindeer for their first North American Holiday Tour!

    The California Guitar Trio kicks off a year of festivities, in celebration of 25 years of their genre–busting partnership, with this magical seasonal offering. Masters of classical compositions and classic rock, surf guitar and sonic experimentation, the California Guitar Trio trims your tree with holiday standards from around the world- timeless, as “Silent Night,” and timely, as John and Yoko’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over).” Unwrap a poignant, passionate rendition of “Greensleeves,” and a hypnotic “Carol of the Bells” which is a favorite on Pandora Radio’s Holiday Music station.

    Of course, the show features CGT’s captivating storytelling and wit, interwoven with intricate, unexpected arrangements, the hallmarks of this instrumental super-group, whose music once awakened the astronauts on the space shuttle Endeavor.

    Fans can expect favorites from California Guitar Trios’ beloved repertoire, as well as an “altogether warmhearted reckoning of Christmas carols and other pleasantries” (iTunes), with selections from their release, A Christmas Album. The recording has racked up an astounding 30 million plays on Pandora, with nearly five million in 2016 alone!

    Forget the shopping and holiday stress! Gather with family, friends and your community for some comfort and joy with a show yule always remember!
