Free Fun Friday
The Highland Street Foundation has made it possible for the ferries to Georges or Spectacle Island, which run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to be free on August 8. Enjoy a picnic on Georges Island, or relax aside a sandy beach on Spectacle Island.
Due to high demand, all tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are available starting at 8 a.m. on the day of the trip at Boston’s Best Cruises Long Wharf-North Ferry Center. A full calendar of island events can be found at BostonHarborIslands.org/park-calendar.
Location: 66 Long Wharf, Boston. For more information, visit IslandAlliance.org.
