The second event I worked was Holly-Day on the Harbor at Waterfront Square near South Station at which we set up a stand in order to help kids celebrate Christmas on the harbor. There were lots of things for the children to do including a music session in which many kids participated in. Kids were able to look at the touch tank to observe a two pound lobster and they had the chance to dress up as a pirate. Kids also worked with our artist in residence, Robyn Reed, to paint water bottles to contribute to her Changing Course exhibit. This was definitely one of the most exciting events I've been to because it flew by extremely quickly while I listened to holiday music sung by the musical guests.

This past Thursday, I attended the 7 Artists, 7 Fishes event at the Boston Harbor Pop-Up museum in the North End, featuring many environmental artists and tasty calamari prepared seven ways. This event was exciting because there was a lot of people who came to learn about what we were doing at Save the Harbor/Save the bay and it was incredible seeing so many people interesting in the release of the 7 sustainable fishes to prepare at the traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. The best part of the event was the food that was catered and prepared by Chef Basil of the Daily Catch, as it was extremely delicious and I could not help myself from going back for more.
