Somerville Saturday: SomerStreets! Spring Cleanup! Family Fun Day!

Fun events going on this weekend in Somerville:

From the city website:

Spring Cleanup, Family Fun Day to be Combined With June SomerStreets Event

Rescheduled Spring Cleanup to Join SomerStreets, Joe’s Jazz and Blues Festival and Family Fun Day on Saturday, June 19th; SomerStreets will be Held along Broadway, Powderhouse Boulevard

The City's second SomerStreets event will be held on Saturday, June 19th in conjunction with Joe's Jazz and Blues Fest, the annual Family Fun Day, and the rescheduled Citywide Spring Cleanup.

"The first SomerStreets event along Shore Drive in May was a tremendous success, and with a variety of upcoming summer events, this is another great opportunity to celebrate the Somerville community through arts and music," Mayor Curtatone said. "With community-oriented, family-friendly activities throughout the day, I hope this will serve not only as another celebration, but also a way to meet residents and community members from all of our neighborhoods and squares, and from all ethnic backgrounds."


And more about Joe's Jazz and Blues Fest.
