The Weekender: May 18-20

We’re always excited as the weekend approaches, and this weekend is no exception. This is sure to be a wonderful weekend in Boston. The forecast looks great and there are so many events worth checking out. How are you planning to spend your free time this weekend? Here are our top picks for May 18, 19, and 20.

Beer Here. Raise your glass and celebrate summer at HarpoonFest on Friday and Saturday, or the Harpoon 5 mile race on Sunday morning. Nothing beats fresh beer, a lively crowd, and summertime at Harpoon.

EarthFest. Celebrate our planet and raise money for environmental nonprofits at 92.2’s EarthFest. The concert lineup includes Eve 6, Switchfoot, the Spin Doctors, and Third Eye Blind.

Nantucket Wine Festival. Looking for a weekend escape? Hop a ferry to Nantucket and head to the Nantucket Wine Festival. Nothing beats sipping a glass of rosé on a patio.

Go on a Safari. Join the Phantom Gourmet’s Hot Dog Safari and you’ll encounter a lot more than just hot dogs. The fun takes place on Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park. The event raises money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Joey Fund.

Happy Birthday. The Franklin Park Zoo is celebrating its centennial anniversary during Saturday’s Zoo 100 Day. There will be musical performances, games, and free cupcakes from Sweet.
