Boston Freedom Rally this weekend

marijuanaThe 25th Anniversary Boston Freedom Rally is this Saturday and Sunday September 13th & 14th on the Boston Common starting at “High” Noon each day and concluding at 8PM.

Sergio and I have checked out this event in years past which is intended to raise awareness about cannabis.   This is actually one of the largest rallies / festivals hosted in all of the United States.

Here is a photo of the Boston Freedom Rally from a few years ago.  For more information about the event, including performance schedules for the two stages, visit their website, here.
