Freak Out

I love the Topsfield Fair….but, not necessarily in the cold rain. Nonetheless, I took Finn and a friend last night for about 4 hours. Unfortunately, with the drizzle, they closed many rides. I’m all for safety, but I can’t help but wonder why the Freak Out is deemed safe in the rain while lesser rides shut down. Since it was one of the few rides open, I had to watch the boys go on it several times in a row. No thank you.

Boston Lights at Franklin Park Zoo

We visited Boston Lights last year at Franklin Park Zoo and decided it was worth taking our daughter back to this year. I recall recommending you visit earlier in the evening for parking purposes as well as reduced crowds and this recommendation remains the same EXCEPT driving into the city at that time of day is a crap shoot. So if you can’t manage to get there, perhaps you will enjoy these photos. I was pleased to note that the displays are not just the same ones rotated in from last year. The show is open until October 23. The experience had a different theme (solar system/stars) and the displays additionally feature occasional blowing “smoke” in addition to motion and sound effects. We had a great time and I would go again another year with or without grandchildren.
