2. Be A Veterinarian: Has your child always wanted to be a veterinarian? The Franklin Park Zoo wants to help! Join Zoo staff on Saturdays in January between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to learn about veterinary health and practice good vet skills. Bring a stuffed animal! Details on our calendar.

3. Championship skating: Figure skating is in town! American Olympic hopefuls are skating at the Boston Garden this weekend. Get all the information on skaters and schedules here.

5. Weather: Well, after some bitterly cold days, we’re going to add some snow to the mix again today. According to the National Weather Service, we have a chance to snow showers before 5 p.m. today to go along with temperatures in the mid-30s. Expect a slight warm-up over the weekend, though, as we could see the mid-50s on Saturday.
