Winter Lights on the Greenway is a series of lighting displays and innovative art installations intended to bring warmth and cheer to the Greenway during the darkest part of the year. Installations will take place across the Greenway.
Local artists, architects and design teams will display their installations for different periods of time; some will last only a few days and others up to three months.
So, head on down to The Rose Kennedy Greenway
and take in the sights....
ICA Museum is a great way to spend a day checking out alternative, progressive artists (if you've had enough of renaissance paintings at the MFA). They have awesome displays and touring exhibitions from people like Anish Kapoor (the Bean in Chicago), etc. If it's nice out, you can take a walk around the harbor afterwards or go to one of the many new restaurants in the Waterfront neighborhood. Pick a pretty day with great Fall weather and take a trip to the ICA Museum!
Halloween is soon to be approaching us, so why not do something a little bit different this year. Trick or treating is over rated anyways so grab your friends and bravely walk aboard the Haunted Ghost Ship. Enjoy a night filled with dancing, drinking, fun people, and a very spooky atmosphere. Who knows, maybe this ghost ship will get lost at sea? I haven't decided if I'm going to risk it yet, but all of you fearless people make sure to get your tickets quick for this event sells out fast.
They will be leaving the Boston Harbor at 9PM sharp, and returning at midnight (we hope) so plan to spend Saturday, October 27 on the edge.
The Christopher Columbus Park Celebration is today from 11AM-3PM (imagine that)! So I know you have been looking forward to your day off from work, and now you are probably choking on the tv remote. Don't be a couch bug! Enjoy Columbus Day at The Christopher Columbus Park, and celebrate the fact that we don't have to sail the ocean blue to find new places to live.
"A fun filled time that will kick off with a children's parade through the Park and wreath laying ceremony at the statue followed by a marionette show, magician, face painting, games and much, much more!!!"
It's that time of year again. You know... The Harpoon Brewery's Octoberfest in Boston's Waterfront. Every year it is a huge hit, and people from across New England make there way to Boston (as well as stumble their way out) You are guaranteed to have a large selection of Harpoon beers, including IPA. Rumor has it that you will even witness the best Chicken Dancing this side of the Alps has to offer and the famous keg bowling game. So make sure to party hard people while enjoying three stages of music.
"The last weekend in September is time for our German style Octoberfest- the biggest in Boston. Come enjoy fresh Harpoon Octoberfest beer, German food, and German Oompah music. Prost!"
So when is this event? Yes, I know it is called Octoberfest but don't be deceived! It is actually in the last week of September on the following dates: Friday, September 28th, 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm (Doors close at 9:30 pm) and Saturday, September 29th, , 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm (Doors close at 7:30 pm)
Tomorrow is the big day... if you're an art lover that is. From September 7-9, 2012 the Boston Arts Festival will be in its 10th year! In 2003 the Festival began as a single afternoon event. Ten years later it has expanded into a 3-day celebration incorporating a diverse performing arts program, a specially built artists’ village and an interactive arts schedule. The festival features the best of the Boston arts scene over a two-day event at Christopher Columbus Park on Boston's Waterfront which has featured local artists such as Blue Man Group, Boston Ballet, and Boston Pops.
See all you artistic people (and wannabe's) there!
