Things to Do in Boston this weekend for families


I am starting a new post series today.  Having strived to inspire you with our weekend, vacation and holiday celebrations for a year now, I realize that there are many more exciting things happening in Boston than I can write about in my review posts.  So I decided to start a ROUND UP Friday series for UPCOMING BOSTON WEEKEND – to highlight some of the local events on my radar that might be of interest to you.  I plan to include a mix of cultural happenings for kids and adults as well as outdoor activities and excursions within 1-2 hour reach.

Being the end of school vacations, this weekend’s balance is going to be tipped in favor of the kids’ activities.  This does not mean, of course, that the entire family can’t join the fun.

On Saturday, I am taking my family (grandparents included) to the Big Apple Circus’ new show “Metamorphosis” in City Hall Plaza (in town until May 10 ).  Try discount code Apple (may not work for all dates/seat selections).

Shrek the Musical continues at Wheelock Family Theater through May 25 (with weekend matinees at 3pm).  See my post about it here with a link to discounted tickets.

On Sunday, April 26, I hope that the weather will not interfere with Japanese Festival in Boston Common, 10-5pm (free entrance); there going to be free performances, and activities/ shopping booths.

I also plan to check out Massachusetts State Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships  in Norton. I am a big fan of this very artistic sport and also excited to support New England’s Sport Academy’s team.

If you are still unsure what to do with your kids this weekend, check out Massachusetts “Bucket list of things to do with kidsHere (brought to you by local parent bloggers).   Between museum activities and outdoor adventures for families with kids of all ages, you are bound to find your calling for THIS WEEKEND!
