On Saturday, September 29, the Annual Fall Festival is taking place at the Breakheart Reservation in Saugus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There’ll be scarecrow making, face painting, balloon sculptures and arts and crafts. And you’ll be able to learn about Native American song, story and dance!
On Sunday, September 30, Belle Isle Park is holding the Harvest Festival from 1 to 3 p.m. Swing by to see live animals, take a hayride, decorate a pumpkin and listen to live music! It’s free fun for the whole family.
