City’s Children’s Winter Festival couldn’t be better

School vacation’s Children’s Winter Festival, presented by the Boston Parks Department in conjunction with several partners, was a well-coordinated community activity that was totally enjoyed by hundreds of families throughout Boston.

The Festival had many things to do, special activities, musical entertainment, giveaways, games and much more for all those that participated in the terrific Boston events.

If you missed it, you missed a great event.

good elected officials

State Senator Joe Boncore and State Representative Aaron Michlewitz have served the North End/Waterfront area as well as can be in the Massachusetts Legislature.

They have always responded to the needs, issues and requests from the community, in a very timely and productive manner.

Most likely, Senator Joe Boncore or Representative Aaron Michlewitz both have no Democratic opponents, and maybe no Republican or Independent candidates.

If so, it should be a credit to their accomplishments as good elected officials in the Senate and House.

Greenway/Columbus Park are great places to go to

Friends of Christopher Columbus Park and the Rose Fitzpatrick Kennedy Greenway Conservancy have made it possible for thousands of North End/Waterfront residents and visitors from every corner of the state to enjoy all kinds of activities and events for the entire family, over the years, and there is much more to come.

Both The Greenway and Columbus Park have become the gems of the community. Great places to have fun and enjoy the many activities that take place at each area.
