Cambridge River Festival

The second and third weeks in June are usually quiet in Cambridge. Harvard and MIT are out for the summer, summer school doesn’t start till July, and the high school is still in class. So that’s when the Cambridge Arts Council puts on its annual River Festival. This year’s festival last weekend was on a warm June day, a pleasant break from the heat wave that had gripped us for a few days earlier in June.

I particularly enjoyed jazz Dominique Eade on the WGBH tent stage and The Resophonics on the Club Passim tent stage. The Be the Change folks were there as well. And there’s nothing like a pulled pork sandwich and a soft-serve ice cream sundae.
