Brighton Allston Bicentennial Events This Sunday 9/23: 5-K Race, Parade, Street Fair

This Sunday, September 23rd, sees two staple events -- the Brian Honan 5-K Road Race and the Allston-Brighton Parade -- join with the new Allston Village Street Fair to make a day of fun for everyone. It's all part of the Brighton Allston Bicentennial year of celebration. I'm hoping that my new classification as a master leads to a good result in the race... you can also root for racer State Rep. Kevin Honan along the way.

Sunday, September 23rd
12:00 (noon) -- Brian Honan 5-K Road Race: Start/finish at The Kells of Boston, 161 Brighton Avenue, Allston, MA. Race goes west along Brighton Avenue, southwest on Cambridge Street, west on Washington Street, then turns around near the Swan Cleaners just before Oak Square.

1:00 pm -- Allston-Brighton Parade: start in Allston Village Barry's Corner, otherwise same route as the race, ending in Oak Square. (Note: the starting time is unclear. A-B TAB announces it as 1:00 pm, while Tolman/Moran/Honan flyer I received in the mail [twice] said 1:30 pm.)

12:00 - 6:00 pm -- Allston Village Street Fair: on Harvard Avenue between Brighton Avenue and Cambridge Street. Food vendors, music groups, and children's activities (face painting, Storymobile, clown, moonbounce, etc.). website

2:30 - 6:00 pm -- Post-Parade Party in the Park: sponsored by Representative Michael Moran. At Hardiman "Tar" Park, Oak Square.
