During the more agreeable months of New England (a.k.a June-August) it is easy for the mind to wander. That’s fine; after all it is summer and it’s hot and it’s maybe both a blessing and curse.
In these beautiful months there’s no school, sometimes no work and maybe a vacation in there somewhere. But for those of us who have to stay at home, Cambridge is always bursting with fun activities to do over the summer!
Put together for you lovely viewers is a collection of fun and interesting events going on in Cambridge for the whole month of June!
June 14: The 9th Annual Family Music Festival
25 Lowell Street, Cambridge
Sunday, June 14 from 12pm-3pm
On June 14th the city of Cambridge is celebrating its 9th Annual Family Music
Festival! Music festivals are always the place to be. I mean, who doesn’t appreciate good music and a fun time interacting with other people who also appreciate good music.
This Cambridge event is meant mostly for families but all ages are encouraged to attend. Featured in the Lowell school parking lot, there will be fun picnic games, face painting, crafts, a bake sale and of course concerts!
An added bonus of this rondevu is there will be a music instrument petting zoo!
Music will fill the air and drift into your ears and make you remember the beauty of all different kinds of music. Don’t miss out on this Cambridge event!
June 20th: The Donkey Show at Oberon
2 Arrow Street, Cambridge
Saturday, June 20th at 7:30pm
Tickets from $25
The Donkey Show, directed by Tony Award-winner Diane Paulus, introduces a show that blurs the line between every social boundary. This show will push you out of your shell and into the reimagined world of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. If you love Shakespeare, this show is for you.
But be warned: The Donkey Show is only a loose interpretation of the actual play, so my advice would be to expect a lot of spontaneous twists with an enormous amount of fun.
Nevertheless, this club-like experience will have you wanting more. Imagine grooving in the middle of the dancefloor at Oberon Theater while the show unfolds around you. The Donkey Show includes the ultimate ’70s disco soundtrack combined with a sinful amount of glittery skin.
Watch the male and female actors/dancers hanging from ceilings and dancing on tables. Exchange looks with your friends that says “those people look ridiculous” (even though we all know you dance like that too) when observing the crowd.
Now the only puzzling question left is why this show is called The Donkey Show. I guess you’ll have to buy a ticket and figure that out for yourself.
