If Natick wasn't already awesome in the summer, Natick Nights make it a staycation capital of the world. Every year in June and July the downtown transforms into a community soirée on Thursday nights. Local businesses, the artist community, and the residents come outside to celebrate everything this town has to offer.
Rain or shine, Natick Nights feature performances by local musicians, gallery openings, beer and wine tastings, restaurant specials, activities for kids, you name it. To make it even more awesome, each week there is a different theme: Kids Night, Vintage Night, Murder a Merchant Mystery Night, The Voice Competition, Ladies Night, Healing Arts Night, The Downtown Brewfest, The ArtWalk, Christmas in July... This amazing line up is the result of the hard work of the Natick Center Cultural District.
Check out this line up: craft tables for kids all over the downtown area, free gemstones for every kid under 10, free family photos, music instruments and family sing, dancing, obstacle courses, parachute, trampolines, math activities, a ninja star games, aromatherapy for kids, dress-up, face painting, and my daughter's favorite: a kids rave party (where kids glow in the dark!).
