Things To Do in Boston this Weekend: Winterfest, Pirates, ZOOdunnit

School winter vacation week is winding down, but there is still one more weekend of carefree fun to be had. Channel your inner buccaneer at Everybody Loves Pirates. Solve mysteries at Franklin Park's ZOOdunnit as well as at the Great Chocolate Train Wreck Mystery. Appreciate the winter outdoors in Boston by visiting the Lowell Winterfest, going on a Winter Wander, taking a Winter Harbor Cruise, and being active at the Franklin Park Coalition Winter Games.  

Finally, be sure to celebrate diversity with song and stories at the Children's Museum program, Play Songs and Games with Castle of Our Skins. Check out the Children's Museum's sparkling new PlaySpace for babies and toddlers while there!

Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
