Summer camps and family vacations may be winding down this week but there are still a few chances to check some classic New England fun off of the summer bucket list. Appreciate antique boats, indulge at the last feast of the season, savor some Caribbean food and a parade, and learn all about Jaws and his friends. Let your imagination run wild at the deCordova or head up north to make some festive flower crowns.
