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.

That was one awesome blogpost by the Scotsman!

Hmmm - such a small slice of East Boston so vividly described. Although most of us natives know the why and the how of the parks' existence - it is very interesting to see the impact and value perceived by visitors.

I reached out to Sean and encouraged him to tune into other East Boston centric sites and pages to get the full flavor of East Boston and perhaps plan next visit around some of our festive occasions.
