Take me to the River: Neponset RiverFest

On Saturday, July 20th head to Neponset Park (at the corner of Granite Ave. and Hilltop St.) from 10am – 2pm. 
Celebrate the Neponset River and the beautiful parks and pedestrian paths along the shore, along with the natural salt marshes and wetlands that support more than 200 species of birds, fish and other wildlife.

Bring a blanket and a picnic, and spend the day! Try out a kayak or canoe courtesy of Paddle Boston, explore a tidepool with the New England Aquarium, have a WILD time with Zoo New England or attend a fishing clinic with the Mass Division of Fisheries & Wildlife. There will be food trucks, live music and arts and crafts as well as the spray park for the kids to cool off. Bring your bikes and go for a cruise along the protected paths of the riverway.

Music by American Idol Season 13 finalist, Sam Woolf; award-winning Indie folk soul vocalist, Morgan Minsk; the very talented Boston ILL Harmonic; and other local groups…

This is a family-friendly, public event. For more information visit here!
