Back in 1989 community activist Sal LaMattina put together a neighborhood celebration and called it Eastie Pride Day. Today, Sal represents East Boston on the city council and his community festival is going strong.
The 21st Eastie Pride Day takes place today between 4 and 8 p.m. at Piers Park on the waterfront. It should be sunny and in the mid-80s at the start of the event. Click here to see the line-up of activities.
