September Recap 2023

By October 23, 2023October 25th, 2023Monthly Recap

September kept us booked and busy! We were here, there, and everywhere as the fall season approached Boston. Let’s look back at some of the highlights.

Shipping Up to Boston

The countdown has begun for Sail Boston 2026! On September 27, we announced the return of the Tall Ships to Boston from July 11–16, 2026. We were joined by Mayor Michelle Wu, Representative Aaron Michlewitz, and Sail Boston’s Board of Directors who helped to announce the Sail250 Tall Ships tour in 2026. We can’t wait to see you there!

On Our Feet for Community

We had an energetic day at the Boston University Alumni’s Terrier Fun Run 5K on September 23. In a first-ever event, BU’s Alumni ran the celebratory race to express their Terrier Pride on Alumni Weekend. We got up the next day for another inspiring race day at the Seacoast Cancer 5K on September 24. We proudly rallied with the Portsmouth community to raise awareness and funds for Wentworth-Douglass Hospital towards local patients battling cancer.

Stuffed to the Gills

We had a blast and plenty of great seafood at the Boston Seafood Festival on September 10. Boston’s residents and visitors filled Boston Fish Pier where they enjoyed seafood vendors, music, and competitions. We were even taught some cooking tips and tricks from some impressive local chefs!

Walking for a Cause

On September 14, we joined the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night walk in Worcester in lighting the path to cures and honoring those affected by blood cancer. Supporters and participants raised funds for blood cancer research and patients. Later in the month, we were delighted to be at the Perkins School for the Blind’s Everybody In! walk/move event on September 30. The event featured a walk, activities, and music while raising funds for children with disabilities.

What a Spectacle!

We had a spectacular night with Boston Harbor Now at Spectacle on Spectacle on September 14. Honoring Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll and advocating for accessibility for Boston’s waterfront and climate change resiliency, the event was a beautiful evening filled with food, drinks, music, and community.
