Hundreds of people celebrated the 4th at Magazine Beach yesterday. Many extended families gathered. Some have picnicked here for three, four and five generations. These include the Green, Thompson, Cooley, White, Bridgeman, Headley and Jarvis families. While many of these families are from Cambridge, others are from further away, including Boston, Allston, Mattapan and Waltham.
There was a cool breeze along the river and spirits were high. Children splashed in the pool and the smells of grilled burgers and fried chicken and sounds of laughter and conviviality filled our local “resort.”
