It's Eastie Pride Day
The 22nd Eastie Pride Day takes place today at Piers Park from 4 to 8 p.m. Entertainment and food will be part of the event, as well as a commemoration of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center's 40th anniversary.
On the subject of pride in our neighborhood, I received an email from a Scotsman and he pointed me to a blog post he wrote about a short recent visit to Eastie. He particularly has praise for the fields at East Boston Stadium and the locals he saw there each night. Sometimes it takes fresh eyes to see joy in what others view as mundane.
