Spring is here, the flowers are in bloom, and the fair is coming to town! One of the best things about spring in New England is the chance to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather at some of the fun family events that happen in our communities. We have some awesome fairs and festivals coming to a town near you over the next few weeks, plus some events unique to this time of year. Check out our list and get involved!
May 28th : Discovery Day, Lexington. Kick off Memorial Day weekend with a street fair along Mass Ave! Local businesses will have booths with giveaways and prizes, plus food and entertainment for the whole family.
June 4th : Winchester Town Day. Another street fair with local businesses providing games, entertainment and shopping for visitors, rounded off with an evening firework display.
June 5th - 12th: Charlestown Parade Week. A week of events and celebrations, including Touch a Truck day and a Talent Show, culminating in the Bunker Hill Day Parade (the oldest in the country).
June 30th - July 4th: Lexington Lions 4th of July Carnival. The carnival is in town for 5 days across 4th July weekend, with rides, food and fireworks.
If you want more ideas for things to do in the warmer weather, our Beyond Boston magazine has some great tips for places to visit in the Patriot Trail region. And check back next month for our list of local outdoor music events this summer!
