The Weekender: August 21-23


Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned! My baby shower is this weekend – it’s hard to believe that my due date is only 7 weeks away now! My mother-in-law is coming into town to join in, and I am so excited to show her around. Hopefully the weather will cooperate! Here are some fun things happening over the next few days:

Back to the Future. Enjoy a screening of the iconic movie along the Fort Point Channel by the Children’s Museum this Friday. The showing is part of the Movies at the Milk Bottle series – love the name! Start time is at sunset, between 7:45-8pm.

Green on City Hall Plaza. The Boston GreenFest brings vendors and entertainment to City Hall Plaza this weekend, with concerts on Friday and Saturday, ind out more here.

Chinatown Block Party. On Sunday starting at 1pm, local brands Shojo, Laced Boston, FloorLords (one of the first boy crews in the world!), Reserve and more are hosting a block party at The Chinatown Gate. The fun starts at 1pm, and includes a DJ, food, entertainment, and giveaways. FloorLords are leading a children’s boy class as well as two competitions, and Stoked Pizza will be serving slices from their truck. Sounds fun!

Market Days. One four favorite summertime activities is strolling craft and farmer’s markets. The Greenway hosts artists and crafters on Saturdays, and the South End Open Market on Sundays is a great spot for crafts, antiques, produce, and food trucks!
