Weekend Fun: Summer Solstice, Greek Fest, Backyard Concert, Play at Mosesian Center

The play “Hush Hush” will be at the Mosesian Center for the Arts.

It’s the summer solstice this weekend, and the weather has turned into summer heat so fast! Enjoy Greek food, music, dance and more during the Grecian Festival. Mt. Auburn Cemetery has a full day of events to celebrate the solstice. Go sit in the shade of one of their majestic trees and contemplate what this summer will mean to you. There is an enticing backyard concert on Saturday, and a play based on a Bengali novel at the Mosesian Center. The Tipsy Tea party at the Commander’s Mansion must not be missed! Most important, perhaps, is that there is a holiday this weekend that you may not know about yet, National Onion Rings Day, celebrated at Donohue’s. It’s going on my calendar. (It’s also national kissing day. Not a bad one to celebrate either!)
