Here Comes the Sun: It’s Almost Summer in the Seaport

Summer is almost upon us and the Seaport District has plenty to offer to entertain and engage you throughout the warm months ahead. Beginning later this month, the free outdoor exercise series, Seaport Sweat, returns. Classes from boxing to yoga are offered each week on the Seaport Common at 85 Northern Avenue. If running is your thing, you can join the Lululemon Run Club, which meets every Tuesday night at 62 Seaport Boulevard for a 3.6 mile fun run.
 
All that exercising could make a person hungry, so mark your calendars for the 2018 Taste of the Seaport on June 12 at the Parcel H at Fan Pier. Tickets include food samples from the Seaport’s finest restaurants, music, lawn games and the chance to see the Portuguese Tall Ship, Sagres, docked at Fan Pier Marina. You can also take in the 21st annual Chefs in Shorts event on June 22 at the Seaport World Trade center. This outdoor barbecue brings together some of the area’s leading chefs to create their favorite grilled delights. Proceeds benefit Future Chefs, a local organization which supports urban youth in gaining opportunities in the culinary field.
 
For culture mavens, the Seaport offers complimentary opportunities all summer to see art and listen to music. The Institute of Contemporary Art is free for all visitors every Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. and once a month there are tours of rotating modern art installations commissioned by The Greenway Public Art. Aloft Boston hosts Live At Aloft Hotels, which are acoustic performances by emerging local artists. Featured acts include Julian Dessler, Planet Radio, and Dub Apocalypse.
 
Finally, for some retail therapy, community members can shop and support local black-owned businesses at the Boston Black Owned Business (BBOB) Pop-Up Market at District Hall, 75 Northern Avenue. This event occurs once a month and is free and open to the public.
