Today’s Favorite Things Thursday and one of my favorite things is the fact that Lowell has a lot of festivals. In the summer we have the Folk Festival, in the winter we have Winterfest and there are also a whole lot of other things – ARTventures, Destination World, Rib-n-Brews, ethnic and neighborhood festivals – throughout the year. Most are free and they’re all fun! I love being able to walk out my door and be right in the thick of what’s happening, whether it be live music, human dog sled races, tasty fair food, dancing, public art, or fireworks. Wouldn’t you like it too?
