The Weekender: October 16-18


Happy Friday! It’s another great fall weekend. Although it will be a bit chilly these next few days, this is the best time to get outside and take in the beautiful fall foliage. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Fest. Celebrate fall at the Frog Pond this Saturday! Bring a 8-inch or smaller carved pumpkin to the Common, and see it become one of many to be lit and floated on the Frog Pond. The lighting and other activities, including a magician, games, and giveaways run from 5:30-7:30pm. After the event all pumpkins will be composted. What a fun way to get into the spirit of the season! Find out more on the event website.

Open Studios. This weekend, the artists of Fort Point open their studios to the public. A neighborhood with a long history of artistic production, we always love the chance to chat with artists and get a look at their creative process! See the full schedule of events and additional details here.

Head of the Charles. The Head of the Charles Regatta has been welcoming the world’s best crew teams to the Charles River since 1965! The ultimate two-day rowing competition is back this weekend with over 11,000 racers. We love watching the boats glide through the water from the shore; so beautiful!

Fall Cocktails. Short Path Distillery recently launched their new fall cocktail menu, featuring six new and delicious drinks made with apple cider, pomegranate and other seasonal ingredients. The tasting room is open today from 5-10pm, Saturday from noon-10pm, and Sunday from 1-6pm.
