Community Egg Hunt
Sat. Apr 15, 2017
Every year, hundreds of children ages 2-10 gather in Brighton to scoop up Easter eggs. This tradition was started over 50 years ago by the McCarthy family, and it is continued today by Steve McCarthy and his daughter Molly. No one goes home empty handed. The day is never complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny himself.
Gather in the parking lot at Sisters of St. Joseph, 637 Cambridge Street, Brighton. Festivities start at 11am, and the egg hunt is promptly at 11:30am!
Brighton Main Streets has made this event possible in past years with cooperation of Boston Main Streets, CVS, Dunkin Donuts, Sisters of St. Joseph and of course the McCarthy family.
We'll be looking for you this year. Don't forget to bring your basket.

Mayor Walsh's Allston-Brighton Coffee Hour
Fri. Jun 30, 2017
9:30 am - 10:30 am
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will host the 18th Annual Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series in local parks citywide from April 24 to July 20. The mayor will visit Allston-Brighton on June 30 with a coffee hour at Brighton Common, across from the Brighton branch of the Boston Public Library and the Brighton Courthouse.
"Coffee Hours give me another opportunity to meet with residents, answer their questions and discuss all that the City of Boston has to offer," said Mayor Walsh. "Our parks provide a great backdrop for conversation and I look forward to hearing from more of my constituents throughout the spring and summer."
The Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with Mayor Walsh about open space and other needs in their neighborhoods. Through these discussions and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Walsh looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas and city services. All participants will enjoy coffee and breakfast treats provided by Dunkin' Donuts and fresh fruit from Whole Foods Market. In addition, each family in attendance will receive a flowering plant grown in the city's greenhouses as a gift from Mayor Walsh. Residents at the event will also be eligible to win raffle prizes from Dunkin' Donuts.
Information will be available on City programs from the Boston Public Library, Boston Public Schools, Boston Police Department, and Boston Centers for Youth & Families. All coffee hours will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Dates for the full schedule of Mayor Walsh's 2017 Neighborhood Coffee Hours are below. Locations are weather permitting unless otherwise noted. Coffee Hours being held in conjunction with park openings are also noted.
