Things To Do in Boston this Weekend: Fluff, Vikings, and River Celebrations

It's a party all weekend long with events celebrating marshmallow fluff, Greek heritage, begonias, and even mighty vikings. Fans of all things happening on the Island of Sodor should check out the new Thomas and Friends exhibit at the Museum of Science, and nature lovers can head to Salem for a full weekend of walks, hikes, and sailing. This weekend is also the fall-favorite RiverSing, where families can enjoy live music and dancing in the open air. 

Check our full events calendar and follow our Facebook page for even more ideas for keeping kids busy this weekend. Have fun—fluff-y or otherwise!
