New England's Superbowl win is behind us, but families can continue to celebrate Boston in other ways this weekend, like a sweet festival on the North Shore, a glowing tunnel of love, plus this annual Lunar New Year bash at the MFA (for free!). There are not one but two opportunities to catch the Tanglewood Marionettes performing a special Lunar New Year show too. For all budding scientists, there is a beloved science fest on Saturday and this super cool (and free!) STEM workshop.
