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 feels like spring weather might really be here! It felt so nice putting my parka away this past week. It might rain this weekend for a little bit, but Saturday is going to be nearing 70 degrees. I think we are all ready for the warmer weather to stick around for good. Let’s see what you can do in the nice weather this weekend!
