Belmont World Film’s 8th Annual Family Festival
Bring your tiny film critics for a weekend of family fare. There will be two animated programs on Saturday that feature movies adapted from story books. On Sunday, a full-length animated science fiction thriller about an 11th grade math genius sounds intriguing.

Full Moon Night Hike
The Garden in the Woods is the perfect place for a moonlight stroll. Occurring around the night of the “Beaver Moon,” guides will help you and your kids figure out which animals are still awake, what stars or planets are visible, and how to find your way around in the dark. Afterwards, enjoy hot cocoa and make a booklet of full-moon activities.
Garden in the Woods, 180 Hemenway Rd., Framingham (508-877-7630). At 6:30 p.m. Visit the website for the full schedule.
