It all starts tonight with live music at 14 venues. See the full schedule here. Don’t worry about sleep (“I’ll sleep when I’m dead” – who said that? Leave a comment if you know). Get up tomorrow (Saturday) morning and go to the Rotary Pancake Breakfast — best deal in town and for a good cause. To get you in the right spirit, I thought it would be fun to reprise Ed Collard’s classic, camera-swinging coverage from 2010 (pants, shoes, turf & all).
Once you’re full of pancakes, walk down to the Waterfront Festival (click the STOP button on the video camera before you start walking — unlike Ed).
Be sure to stop by the GMG booth where you can enter to Win 2 free tickets to ORLEANS at North Shore Music Theatre PLUS 2 Killer GMG Mason Jars of Iced Tea.
Head right from the Waterfront festival to the Block Party for an evening of al fresco dining, dancing, shopping, music, kids’ games & prizes, street performers, life-sized street chess, robot squirt gun fights & more.
Then take the Block Party inside @ 8 local clubs until the wee hours. Check the complete live music listings for Saturday here. You’re guaranteed to find something you like — even if you don’t like to party.
