Activities To Get You Out of the House This Weekend: Princesses, Full Moon Hike, Reptile Expo

Spring has sprung and our calendar is blooming with events this weekend! Hit the great outdoors for a nighttime full moon hike in Ipswich, track animals in Southborough, or investigate the changing seasons with a guided tour in Boylston. Once you've got your fill of fresh air, dress up in your royal finest for the Princess Expo in Norwood or visit with scaley friends at the Reptile Expo in Manchester, NH.

And we know a certain famous bunny is prepping for the big day—join in the fun!  Go for an Alice in Wonderland-themed hayride egg hunt in North Andover or meet furry friends and search for eggs in Georgetown. 

While you may be getting out and about more these days, there's still plenty to do at home, with lively concerts from 123 Andres and a Virtual Hip Hop Dance Class via Poppins @ Home. Read on for more things to do this week and weekend around Boston, and make sure to check out our favorite March 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.
