Wharf Festival is sure to provide plenty to do for the entire family. There will be lots of outdoor activities, including carnival games, Aquarium costumes, face painting and more. Plus, Magic 106.7 will supply the tunes, Faneuil Hall Marketplace will bring some lively entertainment and the Freedom Trail Foundation Pirates and Patriots Tours’ 18th century-costumed guides will add some arrrrrr to the event! Check back to find more details as we get closer to the event—we have some surprises up our sleeves!
