End of Winter- Pop Up Celebration
March 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
We are excited to partner on an end of winter pop up celebration in beautiful Franklin Park!
The Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics recently announced the winners of Play Around the Snowy City, a design competition that sought ideas for playful, temporary design installations and events throughout Boston this winter.
The Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics, the Franklin Park Coalition, and the Mayor’s Mural Crew will host an end-of-winter pop-up celebration on March 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Franklin Park next to the Franklin Park Golf Clubhouse off of Circuit Dr. The event will feature Winter Memories: Boston and a life-sized coloring book activity facilitated by the Mayor’s Mural Crew.
Families with children 0-13 can also participate from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in a Winter Yoga Poses and Nature Walk led by Appalachian Mountain Club’s Outdoor Rx program, meeting at the Golf course Clubhouse.
Winter Memories: Boston, a storytelling and sharing project, invites neighbors to share and listen to winter memories in a warm, mobile recording studio. The project easily creates storytelling areas in parks and community centers. At four events throughout the city, people will enter an accessible tent, enjoy a warm beverage, record a winter memory, and have the opportunity to listen to previously recorded memories.
Winter Memories: Boston has already made appearances at Boston Parks and Recreation’s Winter Festival on Boston Common and BCYF Paris Street.
