Sailabration

What better way to show off your love for “the land of the free and the home of the brave” than with a visit to this weekend’s aptly named “Star-Spangled Sailabration” in Baltimore? Put on your American flag pants (or bowtie!) and scoot down to this weeklong festival, which commemorates the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 and the writing of every American’s favorite tune … “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

There’s no better time to visit San Francisco than in April, after the rainy season has ended and before the summer fog settles over the city. You don’t have to be religious to have a hippity hoppin’ good time this weekend at the city’s annual Spring Celebration and Easter Parade

Final Four

Now in its 21st year, the event runs from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. this Sunday, April 8. Not only will kids get to meet the Easter bunny himself (you’d think he’d be too tired after all those basket deliveries!), but they’ll also  get to ride ponies, play with all kinds of adorable furry creatures at the petting zoo, bounce around in inflatable houses and test their climbing skills on the rock wall.

There’s no better place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than Boston (well, OK, besides Ireland).  Boston has one of the highest concentrations of Irish pubs (and people of Irish descent) in the US, and St. Paddy’s Day celebrations date back to the days before the American Revolution. But if you’re not interested in fighting through the throngs of people day-drinking along the parade route in “Southie,” put on all the green clothes you can find and head to Faneuil Hall for some family fun.

Irish step dancers

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Faneuil Hall will feature free live entertainment on the West End Stage. Performers will include bagpipers, Irish step dancers and other Irish musical groups. We know you’ve been practicing your jig for just this occasion! READ MORE
