This coming Sunday, September 13th the City of Boston, in collaboration with the Highland Street Foundation will be creating a Fenway Park atmosphere in the Boston Commons. This is the second year that the City of Boston has partnered with the Highland Street Foundation to host the "Out of the Park" event.
The “Out of the Park” event will feature a live viewing of a Red Sox away game, broadcast by the New England Sports Network (NESN) on a massive big screen with cut-ins by a live game announcer. The event will have caricaturists, balloon artists, face painters, giveaways, popcorn, ice cream by Hood and Kayem’s famous Fenway Franks. Red Sox Mascot Wally the Green Monster, Fenway Park DJ TJ Connelly, and the Hot Tamales Brass Band will also make special appearance.
Earlier this year Highland Street partnered with the city of Boston's Parks and Recreation department to improve 10 local fields around Boston for youth of all ages to play on. The game starts at 1:10 as the Red Sox will be finishing off a three game weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The event is being held in the the corner of the commons where Beacon Street and and Charles Street meet. Make sure to bring your blankets and arrive early in order to get a great view of the big screen and watch the game.
