Weekend Fun: Lions, Musicals, and Campouts

August may not seem like typical theater season but this weekend there are not one, not two, but three kid-friendly performances happening around Boston. We're also excited about a few of MP's favorite August events, including one with stars, s'mores, and meteors, one song spectacular for all ages, and a real summer campout. Music lovers should head to Jamaica Pond for a popular classical music concert, and dance enthusiasts should check out this new fest by Urbanity. Don't forget to celebrate World Lion Day at the zoo!
