Newburyport Spring Fest 2011 and North Shore Memorial Day Parades

Memorial Day weekend…  ahh, the kickoff to summer, finally!  In addition to a million North Shore parades, clever Newburyport has a great family-friendly event planned for those of us that ache for something other than drums, guns and too much noise in general.  The Newburyport Spring Fest 2011 is a 2-day event taking place this Sun-Mon, 5/29-5/30.  Live music in Market Square from 1-4 each day, art, fine crafts, food from Newburyport’s best restaurants.
