Legio III Cyrenaica Roman Legion @ Higgins Armory 11/14 Worcester
The Higgins Armory is always worth a trip. It’s one of these perfect places that both kids and adults enjoy, and see and learn about the armor and weaponry from ancient times. They are continually having fun events. This weekend, re-enactors play warriors from Ancient Rome.

An Evening of Illumination @ OSV 11/14 Worcester
Also re-enactment-tastic, Sturbridge Village is bigger than and just as good as Plimoth Plantation. They are continually having events and this one is at night using 19th century lights. I’m sure it’s beautiful.
