Here Are the Things You Want To Do this Weekend in Boston: Ninja Festival, Maple Fun

The weather is warming up and our calendar is filling up! From art to maple festivities to a ninja party, we've got an activity to please every little one this weekend. Kick off maple season by learning to tap a tree in Sharon or search for sap at Southborough's annual "Tap-a-Thon" instead. Keep the nature vibe going and master how to start a fire and forage foods at a ninja festival in Concord. Want to stay inside, away from the late-winter chill? Tune in on the radio and join in a graffiti art tour right from your car in Allston or heat up the kitchen baking up some unicorn cupcakes in Beverly.

For even more indoor fun to pass the time, be sure to check out our list of Boston museums and play spaces that have reopened, or sign kids up for a virtual program—we're excited about Science Through the Alphabet via Poppins @ Home. And make sure to check out our free February online events and classes. As always, keep tabs on our Boston events calendar for daily updates on local and virtual happenings. 

While we are trying to promote safer activities that occur outdoors or with social distancing guidelines in place, please keep your family and others safe by always wearing a mask and maintaining an appropriate distance. If you arrive at an event that appears too crowded, try using the “nearby” search feature on our events calendar to find something else to do. Note new travel restrictions for out-of-state events.
