Okay, I’m going to be spicing it up a little bit here on the blog… just a tiny bit. The Cheap Weekend Fun that is typically posted on Fridays will now happen on Thursdays to give you (and me) an extra day to plan some weekend fun! Here’s some of the free and cheap weekend events in Boston and beyond for the first full weekend in September:
Celebrate Boston Charter Day: Saturday, September 7, 2013. Commemorate the naming of Boston, Dorchester, and Watertown and discover the lost history of pre-revolutionary Boston! Admission to the Old South Meeting House will be free all day (for Mass residents) as well as the Boston Founders Trail Walking Tour will host a free two-hour tour at 5pm. RSVP here for Boston Founders Trail.
Bank of America’s Museum on Us Weekend: Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, 2013. Bank of America & Merrill Lynch cardholders can get into select museums the first weekend of every month for free by showing their bank card (per cardholder, not family). Museum of Fine Arts, MIT Museum and other museums across the state participate.
One Heart Festival Appreciation Day: Saturday, September 7, 2013 from 2-7pm at Lorenz Island Kuisine in Dorchester.
