In the heart of April, amidst the blossoming of spring, lies an array of opportunities to explore and enjoy our communities, especially during the April school vacation. As nature awakens from its winter slumber, parks, gardens, and recreational areas beckon with the promise of outdoor adventures and leisurely picnics.

April in the Boston and surrounding areas is not only a time of natural beauty but also a hub of cultural festivities. Communities come alive with special events like the iconic Boston Marathon and spirited Patriot’s Day celebrations. Additionally, April kicks off the local spring sports season, as well as it being an exciting time for Boston and New England pro teams and fans alike.

Amidst these festivities, Earth Day on April 22nd reminds us of our duty to protect our planet. This year's theme, 'Planet vs Plastics', urges us to reduce plastic waste. As we enjoy April's delights, let's also remember to cherish and care for our environment.

With the Spring season here, April is packed with excitement! Check out the list below for a range of events and activities to enjoy in and around your community throughout the month.
