This weekend is for the dragons (boats, that is) as the Boston Dragon Boat Festival returns for two days to festoon the Charles with spectacular colors and designs. Arts for All lends eye candy to Watertown, and thousands of people will be turning out for the family-friendly community dance event in Cambridge. Make some flowers, get the buzz on bees, and learn how to build a birdhouse. Sunday is also World Oceans Day so head to the Aquarium for a free fun educational outdoor event featuring hands-on learning about awesome undersea animals. 

Our June GoList and summer festival guide will provide even more inspiration to get out about with the kiddos this weekend. School's almost out—why not plan some celebrations?!
