Weekend Fun for Boston Kids: Block Parties, Strawberries, and a Family Fun Day; June 24-25
With so many kids getting out of school this week, this last weekend in June really feels like the official start to summer. Kids can rejoice in this new found freedom by heading to an awesome block party, celebrating the wonders of the world, partying with some furry friends, or enjoying a family fun day.
Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
- We found the best mini golf courses in the area for families.
- These Boston swimming pools are free (or nearly free) for families.
- Family resorts with camp for the kids? Yes, please!
- Hit the waves in under an hour from Boston.
- See what free outdoor movies and concerts to go to all summer long.
