Friday Sept. 7 - Before I Die...
Before I die, I want to check out the Before I die... project's latest installation on the Rose Kennedy Greenway (Along Atlantic Avenue, Boston). Basically it's a chalkboard wall with the phrase "Before I die I want to" followed by a blank space and chalk. Visitors are encouraged to fill in the blank. Inspire and be inspired. Learn more about it's origins here . Ok, that's less of an event, than a thing to do, but go do it anyway.
Saturday Sept. 8 - MixFest
Every year, radio station Mix 104.1 flexes is Light Rock muscle and brings the best of the genre to Boston. This year the open air extravaganza features Train, Gavin Degraw, and Andy Grammer. I KNOW, RIGHT? It's at the Hatch Shell and, oh yeah, it's free! Ba-Zing! At the very least, it'll be nice background music as you paddleboard along the Charles! Click for more MixFest info.
Sunday Sept. 9 - Cambridge Carnival
After all that fun in Boston, come on back to Cambridge for a real par-tay! It's the 20th anniversary of the Caribbean style Carnival and parade. Come shake your bon-bon, and revel in the colors. Take some benadryl if you're allergic to feathers. I'm just sayin'... The parade starts at 12:30p, which is perfect for sleeping off the your MixFest wine cooler hangover (public drinking is illegal...so don't do that!!!). Expect lots of bright colors, Caribbean food, music, and lots of people! This event is rain or shine. Let's pray for shine! Check it out!
None of these events float your boat? Sheesh, tough crowd. Well, there's always the Freedom trail.
