This summer, our Summer Fellows explored all eight waterfront neighborhoods from East Boston to Dorchester, highlighting the hundreds of great summer events and places available to the public. Here is just a taste of all the fellows' adventures in a two-minute video that took us all summer to make.
Thank you to all who helped make Summer on the Waterfronts first annual Downtown Neighborhood Week a HUGE success! Boston's waterfront enjoyed record numbers of visitors during the week-long celebration of the Downtown, North End, and Boston Harbor Island neighborhoods who hosted great family friendly activities all week long.
Today, August 15th, marks the last day at The Boston Harbor Association for Scott and myself. Soon enough, Scott will be back in classes at Keane State and I'll be back in Atlanta at Georgia Tech.
It's been 11 weeks since our joining on for Summer on the Waterfront, and my first time ever in Boston, and we've filled it with so many activities.
With lots of free events and activities for Downtown Week starting next Thursday August 7th beginning with the second annual Extreme Croquet Tournament on the Greenway we are pleased to announced that there are plenty of options for getting down to the waterfront to enjoy these festivities. Some of our friends have offered special deals to make your visit even more wallet friendly.
