Labor Day Weekend Things to Do in Boston : Fairs, Jazz, and a Dog Cruise

Bummed to be back to school? The fun activities going on this Labor Day weekend in the Boston area can take the sting out of summer's ending. Family-friendly festivals abound, and there's even a cruise where kids can take their pups aboard. It's your last chance to catch a free movie at the Pru and do one last Swan Boat ride. Participate in a sporting event for a good cause at this 3rd Annual Wiffle Ball Tournament and the Run for the Hills 5k Road Race. Enjoy discounts at Edaville for Military Appreciation, and celebrate international heritage at the Bread & Roses Festival.

Whatever you choose to do, we at Mommy Poppins wish you a happy and healthy Labor Day Weekend!
