Let the fireworks shows begin! Independence Day may fall on a Tuesday this year but that doesn't mean kids can't start celebrating. Harborfest is going strong all weekend long, and neighborhoods like Braintree, the North End, and Acton (not to mention at Edaville too) have festivities of their own.
Film fans can enjoy a movie under the stars, and history buffs can explore the Old Colony region with a special passport to stamp. Need an excuse to get out on the water? Head to the islands to build a fort with giant blocks and play games from another era.
