Folk Festival Weekend

The 2015 Lowell Folk Festival is upon us.  It begins with the kick-off parade which leaves City Hall at 6:30 pm and ends at Boarding House Park for a night of music and food.  (The Dutton St. Dance Pavilion will also be in operation tonight).

The Festival continues tomorrow and Sunday.  Check out the full schedule on the Lowell Folk Festival website.

My favorite activity at the festival is wandering around downtown, following the crowd to the favored acts and food vendors of the year.  Just seeing the city filled with walkers and open businesses is always gratifying.

In the meantime, here are some scenes from Folk Festivals past.
