    Not many things in life are free. This....is one of them. Check the calendar once the weather starts warming up. Music concerts, festivals, movies...even yoga classes :)

    Full Name: Edward A. Hatch Memorial Shell. In addition to its 4th of July events, one of the most memorable shows was 9/9/94 when Green Day held a free concert, sponsored by WFNX for college students!

    Also take a nice walk along the river. GP across the bridge and see the unique Arthur Fiedler bust. Almost as unique as the maestro himself!
