The Weekender: October 20-22

boston events - weekend events

Happy Friday, friends! Can you believe this incredible weather? The days have been sunny and warm, and a lovely fall chill has been rolling around in the evenings. Milo and I have enjoyed taking walks around the neighborhood between dinner and bedtime, and it’s been so fun to see him run through all the leaves covering our sidewalk.

The weekend’s forecast looks amazing, too, and there are so many wonderful ways to enjoy the outdoors. Here are a few things we’re eyeing around town:

Head of the Charles Regatta (and a nut butter tasting)! We love walking along the Esplanade during the Head of the Charles weekend — the energy is so exciting. Take a look at the regatta map and schedule. On Sunday, we will be stopping by the MaraNatha booth for a nut butter taste test (yum) and to catch their Too Good for Jelly mascot. The MaraNatha team will be at the Weld Exhibition area at 965 Memorial Drive in Cambridge from 11am-4pm on Sunday. We’d love to see you there!

Family Day at the Davis Museum. We went to high school in Wellesley and always appreciated the beauty of Wellesley College’s campus. So much green! This Saturday, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College is hosting Family Day: Ready, Set, Excavate! The event celebrates Massachusetts Archaeology Month and International Archaeology Day by exploring ancient artifacts, art making, storytelling, treasure hunts, and much more. Family Day is free and open to the public, taking place from 11-3.

A Celebration of Fine Art. This weekend, head to the Cyclorama in the South End for the 21st annual Boston International Fine Art Show. In addition to admiring beautiful and unique art, attendees can participate in panel discussions, book signings, and special programs.
