As we enter the end of the summer season, the DeMaria administration continues to make sure that the City of Everett offers a variety of programs, events and opportunities for Everett residents.
This summer has been exceptional, from the Independence Day celebration/fireworks to the Swan Street Park Grand Re-Opening, Mayor Carlo DeMaria and his administration have brought the community together to engage and celebrate.
The month of August is no exception.
In celebration of back to school, the City will hold the 2nd Annual Back to School Basketball Tournament on Saturday, August 25. The DeMaria administration aims to provide more activities for young people. Looking to the future, Mayor DeMaria wants to offer similar activities to support young people through to adulthood.
Thursday, August 30 is also an important date to remember, as the second outdoor concert will take place at Wehner Park at 6 p.m. with a performance by Classified. Classified’s music covers a wide range of classic hits: from the pop-rock of The Beatles and selections from the very foundation of rock and roll from the 50’s, right through to the classic hits of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
In the month of September there are also several dates to keep in mind. The end of the summer will see the return of an extremely popular event, Everett Village Fest. A citywide celebration, Village Fest is sponsored in part by Encore Boston Harbor and the Craft Brewers Guild; it is held in Everett’s “Village Business District,” a very cool commercial destination along Santilli Highway. The Fest offers delicious tastes from several of Boston’s best food trucks, locally crafted alcoholic beverages – including from Boston Magazine’s 2017 Best Brewery, Night Shift Brewing – as well as from Bone Up Brewery, Short Path Distillery and Down the Road Beer Co. Additionally, the Fest presents a full lineup of music, including an internationally acclaimed headlining band. This year’s headliner will be announced soon. The event will be held on Saturday, September 15 from 3 p.m.-9 p.m.
Also, in the month of September, the City of Everett and the Everett School Department will once again celebrate Homecoming. Join the City on the weekend of September 22 to welcome back former students and to celebrate the community’s Tide pride. More details to follow.
