The best of September is here, with the top things to do in Boston with kids! The month begins with Labor Day Weekend fun, including the Gloucester Schooner Festival. September ends with a fabulous display of carved pumpkins to stroll through. In between, Boston celebrates everything from marshmallow fluff to lederhosen, and there's a chance for your kids to climb onto trucks and planes at an airport touch-a-truck event. And the month wraps up with the Big E, the biggest fair in Massachusetts.
