The summer of 2021 is going to be one for the books. After a year of cancellations and virtual events, there’s a positive outlook that shows, sports, and other entertainment will be good to safely go on this summer.
It’s never too early to begin making your warm-weather plans around the town. Here are some events in Boston for the upcoming summer that you should know about:
Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl
What’s better than a big scoop of your favorite ice cream on a hot summer day? An all-you-can-eat ice cream buffet where all proceeds go to cancer care and research.
The Jimmy Fund Scooper Bowl is a treasured Boston tradition that is set to resume this summer (the exact date is TBD) after being postponed last year. With over 50 flavors of ice cream served, you won’t want to miss this great event that is sure to help you beat the heat and satisfy your sweet tooth.
Bunker Hill Day Parade
The 246th anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill will be held on June 13, 2021. This event is fun for the entire family with a parade, ice cream carts, cotton candy stands, and plenty more activities, food, and shops to choose from.
Free Friday Flicks at the Hatch Shell
Another Boston tradition is Free Friday Flicks. Grab a blanket or lawn chair, pack a meal and snacks, then sit back and enjoy a Friday night movie at no cost. Keep an eye out for the official movie lineup for this summer and see which films you want to see.
4th of July Boston Pops Firework Spectacular
One of the most anticipated summer events in the city is the 4th of July Boston Pops Firework Spectacular. Between the spectacular orchestra, musical guests, games, and a finale of some of the best Independence Day fireworks in the country, the entire family will be entertained.
Continue to check back on the official website for more information on the 4th of July events in Boston.
Another time-honored tradition is the annual Fisherman’s Feast. Boston’s oldest continuous Italian festival is based on a tradition that goes back to the 16th century in Sciacca Sicily.
Wander the North End adorned in lights and take in the smell of sausage, pizza, and other Italian food in the air. The highlight of the event is when the statue of the Madonna is moved from the Fisherman’s Club to a chapel. There is also plenty of entertainment, bandstands, and vendors to see on the streets.
Book Your Stay in Boston’s Seaport District
As you can see, there are plenty of events in Boston during the summer months. In fact, many of the festivals highlighted span days rather than hours!
When you visit the city, you don’t want to miss a thing. That’s why it’s important to find a Boston hotel in the thick of things. Homewood Suites and Hampton Inn are two locations to consider. These Seaport hotels are located close to the heart of the city so you can easily navigate to the North End, waterfront, theatre district, and more.
