free fun fridays boston highland street foundation new program photoAccording to Highland Street Foundation, As of now, there won't be Free Fun Fridays running in 2021.

**HOWEVER**, don't despair!

They've created an exciting NEW program for summer 2021 called Free August Adventures, that includes 31 days of free programming and access to venues statewide.

For safety reasons, many of the participating venues have limited capacity and are requiring advanced registration. Available spots are distributed on a first come, first served basis.

The Highland Street Free Fun Fridays program invites you to visit a designated museum or attraction in the Greater Boston area (and beyond) for free over during the summer.

Stay tuned for announcements of the 2022 schedule!!
