Each Friday from June 20-August 22, come to Mack Plaza near the Visitor Center from 10AM-11AM for creative activities exploring three themes important to Lowell’s past and present: Family Stories (June 20-July 4), City Kids (July 11-August 1), and Stories of Stuff (August 8-August 22). Your City Summer will take place outdoors (weather permitting, rain location inside the Visitor Center) with different explorations each week.
