To Do List: Greasy pole contest, Moody Street art walk, Roxbury film festival


BOSTON – On the last weekend of June, a local tradition returns to a North Shore town, a free art show takes place in Waltham, a film festival begins in Roxbury, and picnic nights start to be held in Lincoln.

It’s all part of this weekend’s To Do List.

ST. PETER’S DAY FIESTA

A beloved Gloucester tradition returns for the first time since 2019, with events taking place throughout the weekend.

On the schedule during the five-day St. Peter’s Fiesta: parades, boat races, and the blessing of the fleet. But for many people, the highlight is the greasy pole contest with brave competitors attempting to grab the flag at the end.
