Things To Do in Boston this Weekend: Porch Fest, Food Fest, Owls

With so many kid-friendly fall fests happening this weekend, parents will have a hard time narrowing down their choices. For music lovers, Roslindale is having its annual Porch Fest, and Strike Up the Bands is back in Somerville. The Boston Local Food Fest is serving up delicious local grub, and family members young and old can get inspired to move at the new Boston Social Fitness Festival. Animal fans can go on an owl prowl, practice yoga with goats, and check out a new exhibit on butterflies. Gamers won't want to miss Boston FIGFest—now at a new location.
