October 4, 2011: Happy 10th Birthday to “Opening Our Doors” Arts and Cultural Festival

Posted by Elise Couture-Stone, Marketing & Development Associate, The Fenway Alliance This is an exciting year as we are celebrating the 10th Birthday of "Opening Our Doors"! We will have a children's parade led by the music of the Hot Tamales--a live brass band--around the Reflecting Pool of the Christian Science Plaza where we host the Kick-Off on Monday, Oct 10 at 10 AM. Kick-Ass Cupcakes is donating a beautiful cupcake cake so that everyone attending the Kick-Off can help us celebrate. Boston Children's Chorus will begin the Day, and Berklee guys Eytan Nicholson (writer) and Vincent Sneed (performer) will be on hand for a rendition of their famous "So Good--the Boston Song" to get us all in the spirit. Oh, and we'll have lots of food trucks so people can grab a quick, delicious lunch on the run, so they don't have to miss a thing! Take a look at the full list of activities and events going on this year, and don't miss out! We here at the Fenway Alliance have been working diligently with our partners to bring the city this free arts festival, we really hope you can join us! One of our staff members will be riding a city bike from event to event, taking pictures and tweeting throughout the day, maybe you and your family will have a snapshot taken and posted on our website, Facebook and blog! See you there!
