What to do this week: July 2 – 8

This week the circuit hits Provincetown with Independence Week, but if you are staying in Boston there is plenty happening here. I’d like to give the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular on Wednesday a shout out. This year they have an excellent line up of special guests before the fireworks display and Boston Pizza Festival on Saturday and Sunday is always delicious.

The great weather also means that there are ton of free outdoor movies you can check out this week, including: Hocus PocusArtificial IntelligenceField of Dreams  and The Lion King.
