Movie Magic. For low key entertainment tonight, catch a movie outside of the Boston Harbor HotelAn Affair to Remember will be projected onto the outdoor screen at 8 pm.

Festive and Fun! There are quite a few fun festivals in and around Boston this weekend. Check out the Greenfest in City Hall Plaza or wander to the North End to celebrate the Fisherman’s Feast, Boston’s oldest continuous Italian festival.

Listen to the Music. Sounds of summer fill the air at the Fair Trade Music Festival on Saturday at the Prudential Center. And PS, with Ben & Jerry’s as the sponsor, you can bet there will be lots of delicious ice cream!

Take the Plunge. The Redbull Cliff Diving World Series makes a stop at the ICA on Saturday.  Watch competitors drop 80 feet from the top of the ICA into Boston Harbor.

Techie Yard Sale. On the 3rd Sunday of every month (through October 16th), MIT hosts SWAPFEST, a technology flea market. For $5, you can sell or swap anything nerdy. Maybe you can score the latest in hi tech, computers, or electronics for a sweet deal.
