Businesses in Wells are inviting people to celebrate the coming of winter this weekend during the second annual Wells Guarantees Winter November Celebration.

The celebration began last weekend and continues this Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 23 and 24).

There will be an opportunity to make decorative cedar swags at Frog on the Bog Gifts between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

During the day, the Bears Paw Café will be open for lunch, warm drinks and treats from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and BNC Mercantile will give people a chance to warm up with hot chocolate.

The Jack O Clubs General will have a rib dinner special, and the Sunset Theatre will be showing the movie White Christmas Saturday at 7 p.m. After the movie, the Wells Hotel will have a drink special and live music.

This is the second year Wells is hosting a celebration to welcome winter, and it has grown from one weekend to two.
