Share Magazine Beach picnicking stories at Riverfest this Saturday

4 Jun

It’s almost picnic season again! To honor this, this Saturday, June 7th, from 12-5pm, folklorist Millie Rahn will be collecting stories about Cambridge picnics in the Folklife tent at University Park on Sidney Street. She’s eager for: “memories, stories, and foods/traditions of picnics, as well as photographs, objects (picnic baskets, tablecloths, blankets, dishes, etc.), games, and other picnic lore.”

Magazine Beach picnickers, please share your tales! Click here, for more information about Cambridge River Fest (this year at Central Square). The information about the Folklife tent, go to page 10.


Also, many thanks to Novartis’s 80 volunteers for their clean up of Magazine Beach on May 22nd. According to organizer Danielle Stehlik, of the Charles River Conservancy, they: “picked up trash, raked leaves (under the overpass, in the sprinkler pool, and along the pathways), mulched the garden bed, and removed graffiti. They also fixed and painted benches between River Street and Western Avenue Bridges before the rain rolled in.” The park is looking so much better…
