Things to do with Boston kids this weekend

It's finally June and it seems like everyone in Boston—well, kids especially—is ready to celebrate the end of the school year and the start of summer. Parades abound, including ones celebrating Dorchester Day, Pride, and even mermaids. Looking for fun fests? There's one happening all weekend with as much gelato as you can eat, plus this South Shore favorite, a river fest, and a teddy bear picnic. Who loves puppets? This puppet theatre is celebrating 45 years and Margaret Moody is performing vinettes (with a chance to try on the puppets in between shows!).

Also on Mommy Poppins this week:
