Boston Events in May

I love living in New England between May and October. The rest of the year, you can keep it. But for 6 months, it's heaven. We have the coast, flea markets, outdoor festivals, Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, Newport and their amazing summer jazz fest, concerts at the Bank of America Pavilion (my friend Paris and I are going to see Morrissey there in June - can't wait!) the gorgeous coast of Maine, seafood in Rhode Island, and the best Autumn season ever. Not to mention hiking the mountains in New Hampshire, we love spending the day at Bridal Veil falls, it's a gorgeous hike.

But May kicks it all off, and there's nothing like attending a few outdoor events to start the season right. I always head down to Brimfield (only a few weeks away!), and then head into Boston for the opening day of the South End Open Market. If you're in the local area, mark your calendar for both events - you won't be sorry!

The South End Open Market opening weekend is May 19-20th (more details here) and the Brimfield show runs from May 8-13th (click here for the full scoop).

Anyone else have any local plans for May that you'd like to share? Shameless self promotion is totally allowed, so feel free to comment.
