This just in: Architectural Festival & Tours, Fireworks, Balloon rides, Free Zoo Day
Here’s a last-minute update! Also I hear that the campfire / overnight in NARA Park has been cancelled for lack of interest.
Do me a favor? I could use feedback about the new Wheel Questions website. I haven’t heard much from visitors and I’m wondering if there’s something awkward or wrong with it that needs to be cleaned up, especially the pitch on contributions. The goal is to make the thing self-funding. You can reach me at johnny at WeirdBostonEvents.org
