Weekend Fun: Fisherman's Feast, Fairs, and Butterflies

​Let's hope these perfect, late-summer temps continue this weekend with all of the outdoor fun Boston has to offer. From the Fisherman Feast in the North End to a fair in Marshfield that people have been flocking to for over a century, this weekend is packed with some of Massachusetts' most beloved August events.

Want to exercise your mind as well as your legs? Check out this family scavenger hunt. You can also celebrate the power of watergo green, catch a lion dancefloat like a butterfly, or enjoy a lobster bake on the waterfront. Fall is fast approaching, so max out on these long days with these or other activities from our end-of-summer checklist.
