Thousands of people attended and packed Revere Beach this weekend turning it into a Caribbean party. With giant sand sculptures abound, tropical drinks, Hawaiian shirts, music, sunshine and coconuts, Revere Beach resembled an island beach party. All that was missing was palm trees and 80 degree water.
The beach become a mix of traditional beach culture and tourism. While some beach goers just baked in the sun, others were awed by the sand sculptors. The sculptors themselves get better every year, with pieces that are better in both detail and size.
This year’s centerpiece creation honored the 50th anniversary of the United States moon landing and included a large Saturn V rocket as well as astronauts.
During this time last summer it was LimeBikes that had turned the city green. Stacked on almost every corner and rolling down every street was a LimeBike. This time around, BlueBikes are the new wheels on the block.
BlueBikes, a public bike share program offered through a collaboration between Hubway and Blue Cross Blue Shield, is the trendy new way to get around town on two wheels. The Blue colored bikes are located in over 200 docking stations in Boston, Brookline, Cambridge, Somerville and of course now here in Everett.
You may have noticed some of those newly- placed grey colored docking stations around the city, including multiple on Main Street, Ferry Street and Broadway. There is also a single location on Norman street.
