The Massachusetts Department of Wildlife and Fisheries has thrown out a lure to get pro and novice fisherman alike out on any waterway throughout Massachusetts this weekend to catch the fishing bug. Try out your casting and reeling this weekend only license free. Visit the Fisheries section of the state website for ideas of where to catch the big one!

DCR Universal Access Summer Recreation Fair – If you find yourself with free time this summer wandering around Brighton, you need to know what your options are.  Today is the day to find out!  From 10AM – 3PM, discover all that Brighton has to offer at Artesani Park & Wading Pool at 1255 Soldiers Field Road, along the banks of the Charles River. The event is free and open to the public.  Face painting, a treasure hunt and the spray pool are all open for kids.  Children and adults alike can sign up for sailing, kayaking, biking activities this summer and more.


Dragon Boat Festival – If you prefer to be less of a participant and more of a spectator to, well… a spectacle, the 30th annual Dragon Boat Festival will not disappoint. Taking place Sunday, June 7th from noon to 5PM at the Weeks Foot Bridge in Cambridge, Boston’s festival celebrating the life and death of Chinese Patriot & Poet QuYuan is North America’s longest running dragon boat festival. Arts, artisans, Asian cuisine, martial arts, music, games and the excitement of the boats along the Charles make for a much more thrilling Sunday than many may be use to.
