Celebrate our favorite creek

The 5th annual Chelsea River Revel will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along both sides of the Meridian Street Bridge (officially it's the Andrew P. McArdle Bridge). The schedule includes live music, local talents, dance groups, food, moon bounces, boat rides, arts and crafts, rock climbing, a puppet parade, kayaking and more.

Admission is free, except for the 5K road race; the kids race (15 and under) is free. The event is hosted by the Chelsea Creek Action Group, which seeks "to build public awareness; promote public access; seek environmental justice; and transform the neglected, polluted Chelsea Creek into an environmental, recreational, educational and economic resource for East Boston, Chelsea and the region."

The forecast for Saturday is partly and 75 degrees, which should be perfect. For more information, check out the event web site here.
