Tomorrow: Celebrate the neighborhood at the Beacon Hill Festival

Tomorrow, Saturday, June 1, from 11 to 4, the Beacon Hill Festival returns for a fine day at sunny Jefferson Park. (It’s June already?!) This is the 21st annual event; it’s a neighborhood fair, but also a fundraiser for scholarship programs at Jefferson Community Center.

At noon, Mayor McGinn and other local dignitaries will be there for the American Planning Association Great Places Award ceremony, honoring Beacon Hill as one of the APA’s “Great Places in America.”

The day will also include live performances from local schools and artists; a silent auction; 40 vendors, food including hot dogs, teriyaki, and burgers; bouncy houses, Frisbee demos, and we are also promised the chance to “play catch with a robot from Franklin HS Xbot Team!”

  1. I hope the festivities will be drowned out by loud airplane noise — to inspire the mayor and local dignitaries to help the neighborhood do something about reducing it.
