This week’s cool damp weather makes it seem as if fall is just around the corner - even though the temperatures seem to be warming up for the weekend. With the onset of warmer temperatures if a trip to the beach isn’t an option due to other engagements, or the return of the cooler weather, you should check out these upcoming events which will help you transition from your flip flops, shorts and a t-shirt worn while walking in the sand, to shoes and a light jacket worn while picking apples.
Local Events at a Museum, a Festival & a Fair
The Boston’s Children’s Museum is always a fun, interactive place to take your family. Both The Wizard of Oz Children’s Educational Exhibit and Caterpillars of Eastern Massachusetts: A photo exhibition by Sam Jaffe end on Saturday, September 10th. So don’t miss out on your chance to see these two exhibits. If you can’t make it, check the calendar for other upcoming exhibits and events at the museum. You and your family can make a day trip out of it and stop by a local food place for lunch, dinner, or even a snack.
If the beach is still on your mind, then check out the 7th Annual Endless Summer Waterfront Festival at Nantasket Beach in Hull, MA on Saturday, September 17th from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. The festival will feature a sand castle competition, music, food, shopping, and more. Check the schedule of events to see when everything is happening. In the event of rain, the festival will be held on Sunday, September 18th. So don’t pack those flip flops away yet, because technically it’s still summer until September 23rd!
The Topsfield Fair runs from September 30th through October 10th. Take a look at the daily schedule to see what interests you so you won’t miss out! There are attractions such as the Sand Sculpture, the Giant Pumpkin Contest, animals, shows, and more. Plus, you can get discounted tickets with these offers.
Whether you are looking to follow the yellow brick road to the Wizard of Oz, spend a day at the beach, see animals, or explore a new area of the state, then there’s something for you during the month of September!
