A Celebration of Creativity and Community in the Old North End
Saturday, July 31st, 2010 All Day All Night * Rain or Shine

do it North End style with disco veggie shortbus shuttles to move you,
an endless supply of music to get you groovin, lots of yummy local
food to keep you going, and a plethora of goodies to mix it up. Just
add art and, of course, bicycles. You are encouraged to come in
costume although you may just want to make it up as you go along,
stopping at any of the three craft fairs on the map this year. Maybe
you?ll find something on a visit to the One World Market showcasing
micro-businesses and artisans of the old north end?
Field Days, Battle of the Burgs, War of the Wards, North/ South
showdown will kick off the festivities at Battery Park with a little
friendly competition. Expect the water balloon toss to be particularly
difficult to predict this year! Decatur Street Carnival is a festive
place to get your palm read, look at art, sit in the middle of the
street, watch a local band. The House of Hildegard will be hosting a
benefit for the Kai Buddha fund with a, one of many, yard sale.
