One of our favorite fall events is a day trip to Somerville, MA for the HONK! Festival. Every Columbus Day weekend hundreds of activist street bands from accross the US and (two from France!) descend on Davis and Harvard Squares for a "celebration of music, community and activism"
On Sunday, October 9, the bands will march from Davis Square to Harvard Square spilling into a family friendly Octoberfest. Bands perform on the Main Stage and small performances throughout the Square. My kids can't stop dancing!
"Boston Magazine recognized HONK! with a 2015 Best of Boston award, writing 'The music pounds in your chest. The activism moves your soul.'" (From HONK! website). Learn more at www.honkfest.org
