Eight Great Things to Do This Weekend - 9/7/17

Eight Great Things to Do This Weekend – 9/7/17

ONE: It’s a huge bummer that the rest of the Lowell Food & Wine Festival was cancelled, but Made in Lowell will still be putting on their Food Truck Madness event on Friday from 6 to 10 p.m. at Kerouac Park. The event will, naturally, feature food trucks alongside a craft beer garden serving beer and wine, local art vendors and live music.

TWO: It’s that time of year again… that’s right, Andover Day is this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Downtown Andover. Billed as “the Merrimack Valley’s biggest fall street fair,” the event will feature live music, delicious food and well over 50 street vendors.

THREE: This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Greater Haverhill Arts Association will hold their Annual Art Festival on Bradford Common. Meet local fine artists displaying and selling their paintings, drawings, photographs and sculpture.

FOUR: New England’s first Indian street festival is the India Heritage Fest, taking place on Pawtucket Boulevard in Lowell on Saturday from noon to 7 p.m. Food, dance performances, exhibitions, a photo booth, and Bollywood music will all be available as part of this massive Indian cultural showcase, which will take up the entire street!

FIVE: The newest brewery in the Merrimack Valley, BareWolf Brewing in Amesbury, will be holding a Grand Opening Celebration this Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. Get a taste of one or many of their goofily-named beers, like Kitty Kitty Pizza Party Pale Ale, WingWang IPA or even We All Turn Into Our Parents DIPA. How often do you get to drink a brew named after one of life’s most uncomfortable truths?

SIX: The Massachusetts Center for Native American Awareness will hold its Annual Intertribal Pow-wow at Lake Saltonstall, colloquially known as Plug Pond, in Haverhill on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Native drumming and singing, food, games and canoe rides all make this a great event to bring the kids along for.
