New England Patriots Practice

Head out to Gillette Stadium for training camp.  Spectators are invited to watch practices for free.  Training camp begins at 9:15 and the Patriots Fan Zone is open from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Parking is free as well.

Lowell Folk Festival

The Lowell Folk Festival kicked off Friday and continues through Sunday.  Admission is free although a suggested donation of $10  a day to support the arts is not too much to ask.

In addition to music and crafts there is a family activity area on Shattuck St. with hands on games.  There is a Kites Over New England experience as well as artists and musicians sharing their talents all weekend.  For a full map of the festival look here.
