|Annual Kerouac Birthday Celebration||3/11 – 3/13||Metro West|
|Jack Kerouac, the 1950s American novelist who wrote “On the Road”, had some connection to Lowell and they’re doing a whole weekend to celebrate his birthday. Movies / book readings with discussions, live music, and more. It’s the first ALL-CAPS festival schedule I’ve ever seen. Quite painful to read.

|Boston Cream Pi Fight||3/14||Boston Metro|
|Gather at 1:30pm to smoosh whipped cream pies in each others faces, in celebration of the fact that the mathematical symbol “Pi” is 3.14159 and Today is March 14th (3/14). Yes, it’s completely silly. Bring a real pie or a whipped cream pie.
