The weekend weather could not have been better for the 11th Annual “Ahts: The Boston Arts Festival,” held on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend. Christopher Columbus Park was packed with residents and visitors interested in the performing arts, interactive activities, and public arts. Educational art activities were joined by over 45 juried local artists selling their work. Presented by the Mayor’s Office of Arts + Culture in partnership with State Street, the park was packed with people watching the live performances, talking with artists, participating in the art demo’s, and admiring the works. Whether or not you took a walk over to the festival, the fireworks firing over Boston Harbor on Saturday Night surely caught everyone’s attention! For additional details, visit the Boston Arts Festival
