Things to do with families in Boston this weekend

Arts and culture events abound as May kicks off in Boston. Star Wars fans can join together for their favorite day of the year (May the 4th—get it?), and anyone who appreciates Mexican culture (or just a good fiesta) can celebrate Cinco de Mayo the next day. There's a festival celebrating all things Polish and another dedicated to waking up the Earth. What about a chocolate block party or a fairy fest? If the weather cooperates, there is also (free!) sailing on the harbor.  

For more fun this weekend and beyond, take a peek at our May GoList and our Spring Fun Guide. And if your summer plans are still up in the (spring) air, check out our Summer Camp Guide for last-minute ideas for keeping the kids busy after school lets out. Shorts' weather will be here before you know it!
