With July 4th only a few days away, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit! Boston Harborfest begins tomorrow, kicking off a week of activities around town. With more than 200 events, over half of them free, there is something on the schedule for everyone! Bring the little ones to City Hall Plaza on Wednesday for a day full of activities, crafts, and music for children. On Sunday, sample the clam chowder from local restaurants at City Hall Plaza, and cast your vote for “Boston’s Best Chowder.” Throughout the week, free concerts will also be held on the Plaza. And of course, nothing says July 4th in Boston like the concert and fireworks on the Esplanade! For more information on all the Harborfest events visit their website.
