To commemorate Memorial Day, American flags are waving all around Boston, local towns are holding parades, and families can step into history with special activities or spend a peaceful moment reflecting on the significance of the flags on Boston Common.
Family fun this weekend includes a artsy playdate, a celebration of campfire music, and the chance to use some mighty machines. Spending time outdoors at a popular annual festival in Newburyport (pictured) and at an amazing-sounding blue moon performance are two great ways to make the most of the unofficial start of summer.
