The Weekender: August 30-September 2

the weekender

Is it just me, or did summer fly by? I know, I know – it’s not technically over until September 21st, but there’s a definite autumn chill in the air. Don’t get us wrong, we can’t wait for the fall to arrive – apple picking, a few of our favorite holidays, and beautiful foliage, but we’re hanging on to summer just a bit longer. Here are a few picks for a wonderful Labor Day weekend.

Around the Campfire. We are longtime fans of Club Passim in Harvard Square. This weekend, the music venue will host its 15th annual campfire.festival, which will feature well-known artists and newcomers alike.

Childhood Magic at the Kennedy Greenway. I’ve been walking by the new carousel along the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway for the past few days. There’s something so simply beautiful about a classic carousel. On Saturday, the new carousel will open to the public!

Be Inspired by the Ahts. This weekend’s arts festival at Christopher Columbus park looks incredible, featuring visual and performing arts all weekend long. On Saturday night, there will be a fireworks display at 9pm. To see the schedule of events, check out the Boston Arts Festival website.

Afternoon of Fair Trade and Music. This Saturday is Ben & Jerry’s 3rd Annual Boston Fair Trade Music Festival, featuring the Ryan Montbleau Band.
