Pick Of The Week

Family Goat Yoga, 5 p.m. Thursday at the Park (Chestnut and Bartlet Streets): You have to love an event that carries this disclaimer on its description from Andover Recreation: “Please note that the goats will jump on participants regardless of height – smaller participants may be knocked over by our playful goat friends!” The friendly baby goats join courtesy of Chiplin Farm and “love to bounce and cuddle.” The hour-long class includes 50 minutes of instruction and 10 minutes for cuddling and photos, and is suitable for all levels. “While this may not be the most meditative and relaxing yoga class you’ve ever been to, it will surely be the most memorable,” Andover Recreation said. 

Ages 2+, $30, registration required and limited to 30 people. Kids 2-4 free when they attend with sibling/adult. See Website for more info.
