Record snowfall in the Boston area leaves many residents yearning for the far off lands of 85F and sunny, or at the very least a clear path to their car. For those staying home during the upcoming winter break for students, the area offers a multitude of outdoor and indoor activities.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace is the center of action, offering a week of free activities for kids and families. With the schedule changing each day, kids of any age can be engaged by crafts, music and entertainment. Paint a Yo-Yo and learn tricks from John Higby, the Yo-Yo champion of the world, get juggling lessons with Paris “The Hip-Hop Juggler” or watch Wacky Chad’s stunt comedy show.
The Blue Man Group will be preforming from February 14th – 22nd, bringing vivid colors to Boston [or at least the Charles Playhouse]. Combining music, comedy and technology, they “create a form of entertainment that defies categorization and appeals to people of all ages.” With 24 shows over nine days, something is sure to fit in your schedule.
To embrace the winter, Disney On Ice presents “Frozen” at the Garden – hosted by Mickey and Minnie Mouse. The stars of Frozen will be joined by appearances from other Disney princesses, and favorite characters from Toy Story, Finding Nemo and The Lion King.
Regardless of your plans, The Kendall wishes you and your family a fun-filled winter break, and safe travels — whether it be to a sunny beach or traversing the city.
