A look back at summer on Beacon Hill

Though summer technically continues for a few more weeks (and we hope the weather does too), Labor Day is the traditional end of summer around here. Kids are going back to school, the sun is setting earlier, and that long, gray winter is just around the corner. Here’s a look back at this summer on the Hill, with photos from the Beacon Hill Blog photo pool on Flickr. Your photos are always welcome in the pool — please join!

  1. It seems to me that about 5 years ago, the only public event that happened on Beacon Hill during the summer was the Beacon Hill Festival (put on by the Jefferson Park Community Center). Compare that to at all the different events this summer on the Hill, this is a community that is really starting to make things happen!
