Frugal Family - Summer Livin'
It’s the summertime and the livin’ is frugal here in Brookline and Jamaica Plain. We have a beautiful festival, a glorious spa event and a shopping celebration of good grades this week on Frugal Family!
Deal: The Lantern Festival at Forest Hills Cemetery is a well-known and beloved Boston event that draws many people from both inside and outside the city each year. It’s a beautiful celenration that brings neighbors together to remember those who have passed on. The belief is that during this special time, a door opens so that we may “speak” with our ancestors. Bring some snacks and flashlights for the family and delight in the magic. The event is free, with a $10 donation per lantern.
Good Through: Event is July 14
Deal: For even more summer magic, quite literally, check out Steve Rudolph at the Jamaica Plain Public Library, located at 12 Sedgwick Street, Jamaica Plain. He’ll take the whole family on a fun, magical tour around the world. It’s an hour packed with surprises, good humor, and a love for the mysterious. A perfect way to end a hot camp day.
Good Through: Show is June 29

Good Through: Until further notice
Deal: Wednesdays are the middle of hectic weeks. With camp schedules, activities, play-dates, work demands all mounting up, it can be tricky to remember what summer (ideally) should be about – kicking back a bit with the ones you love the most, or just letting yourself take it easy. For a great musical end to the week’s midpoint, check out the Brookline Community Band at Devotion School and embrace a musically uplifting summer night event.
Good Through: Next session is June 29
