Earth Day on the Greenway - This Friday
11am-1pm Dewey Square
Really we should be celebrating the Earth and the fact that we have this gorgeous greenway here in Boston, instead of a superhighway, everyday. This festival will showcase the new gardens at Dewey Square, interactive music making and an historic Boston tour with BostonWalk.
Greek Independence Day Parade - This Sunday
1-4pm Boston Common
Poor Greece, they aren't doing so well these days. But 100 years of independence, that's some good news. The Federation of Hellenic Americans will be celebrating with a
Big Fat Greek Wedding parade and festival on the Common. I'm pretty psyched to see what they have in the parade. And who doesn't love some good feta and olives?
Cambridge Science Festival - starting Friday
All week! Cambridge, MA
Holy camoly. Calling all nerds, RadioLab lovers, amateur tinkerers. The festival starts with a frickin' carnival on Friday at noon. The week-long festival will feature 'Everything You Wanted to Know About Slideshows' (really), a Light Blades show, 'Math and Origami', an author talk on How the Hippies Saved Physics, and more. Literally 100% of this looks fascinating. I won't judge if you take a week off of work and just hit this up all week.
