Fall Funfest stretches along Amherst Avenue between Decatur and Coolidge Avenues. A free jitney will be operating along Amherst Avenue. Wave your hand to jump aboard or head to the Tighe School (Essex and Amherst Avenue) or to the drop off area at the corner of Coolidge and Decatur Avenues.



Rest up, we have a big party planned!

Stretching 6-blocks along Amherst Avenue, Fall Funfest will feature amusements rides, back bay boat tours, Ray Scott Dock's "Wetland Wonderland" marine educational exhibit, a live web cam of a recently rescued seal pup (thanks to the Marine Mammal Stranding Center!), and a 9-hole miniature golf course on the corner of Washington & Amherst Avenues!
