Family Friendly Weekend Awesomeness

boston-college-arts-festival.jpgHooray for a gorgeous weekend on the forecast! There's no shortage of fun on tap in Boston and the surrounding communities; here are some events that caught my eye, via my lovely site partner Boston Central:

Get cultured at the Boston College Arts Festival, Harvard Arts First Festival, Brandeis Performing Arts Festival, International Children's Cultural Fair, or Harvard Square Mayfair.
Stimulate those neurons at the Spring Chess Festival, Cambridge Science Festival, or Newburyport Literary Festival.

Convene with critters at the Birds and Bards Festival or the sheep shearing festivals at Gore Place and Codman Farm.

Rejoice in spring's bounty at the Nantucket Annual Daffodil Festival or Beverly Pear Blossom Festival.

Enjoy a ride with the kiddies at the Newton Kids Fun Fest or North Andover Carnival.
