Coming Up This Week: Santa Parade, Fundraiser for Public Radio

Plenty going on this week, Nov. 26 through Dec. 2.

This is one week where you can't say there's nothing going on in town. You can continue the spirit of giving at a blood drive in Amagansett on Monday or support your local public radio station WPPB 88.3 FM at a fundraiser at Guild Hall on Friday. Santa rolls into East Hampton on Saturday morning, and then heads to Springs for a pancake breakfast on Sunday. And, get your Hanukkah shopping done at the Jewish Center's holiday fair on Sunday.
