Cheap Weekend Events in Boston

Can’t believe it’s the last weekend of April already… where is the time going?! Here are a few things to do this weekend in Boston on a budget! Please let me know in the comments below if I missed any of your favorites!

Also, please keep in mind that I still away taking care of my new son (I’ll be back soon- hopefully!), and I haven’t proofed this post (nor had a lot of sleep) so make sure you do your own diligence and make sure things are actually happening beforehand!
