Just as Independence Week comes to an end Bear Week 2018 roars to life in Ptown, but if you are staying in Boston there is still plenty to do. If you love pizza, be sure to check out the two-day Boston Pizza Festival in Gov’t Center or catch one of the free outdoor movies playing this weekend, Field of Dreams and The Lion King.
Of course there are plenty of parties this weekend, but I’d like to give a special shout out to The Alley’s Bear Week Kick Off Party (no cover), which starts at 2PM on Friday.
