Welcome to A Weekend in Boston, a weekly post about events occurring over the upcoming weekend throughout all of Boston. For events coming up in the North End, see the event calendar. For more information on each event, click on the event title.
It’s been an off and on start to the spring weather. We’ve seen beautiful 65 degree days followed by rainy days in the 30s and 40s. This weekend, though, is looking to be on the warmer side. We can hope that the rain holds off, but it seems like it’ll at least be cloudy through Monday’s Boston Marathon. Let’s see whats happening this weekend in Boston!
