Every city has their own traditions and events that are distinctly their own. I like to write about these events here in Boston because it is easy to take them for granted or overlook how they contribute to and enrich the city. One such unique tradition which I associate with the autumn is the Head of the Charles Regatta.
The annual event typically occurs while foliage is nearing its peak each year in Boston and it can make for a beautiful backdrop for the 11,000+ athletes who are expected come to compete in the world’s largest regatta this weekend.
The Head Of The Charles Regatta (HOCR) is a Boston area tradition that dates back to 1965 and has evolved into the world’s largest rowing competition that spans two days, drawing more than 400,000 spectators who line the banks of the Charles River on both the Cambridge and Boston sides. Be sure to check it out. I prefer to watch from the Cambridge side between the Harvard footbridge and the JFK bridge but there really isn’t a bad place to watch
For more information about this world class event visit hocr.org or check out this really interesting infographic Boston Magazine published last year (2016) about this historic and truly world class event.
There are also several local theater companies with new plays, including Central Square Theater’s The Revolutionists, SpeakEasy Stage production of The Curiuos Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime and The Lyric Stage new show, Souvenir (both of which open this Friday night).
However the biggest event of the week is 53rd Head of the Charles Regatta which will bring more than 11,000 athletes to Boston and Cambridge to race all day Saturday and Sunday along the Charles River.
