Five Things to Know: The Lantern Parade is This Weekend

Essential daily information at a glance, including that this weekend is the big Lantern Parade around the Pond.

1. Forecast: Sunny. Highs in the lower 60s.

2. Lantern Parade: The Spontaneous Celebrations Lantern Parade is Saturday and Sunday starting at 6 p.m. each day. Thousands of people, many of them in costume, will walk around the Pond carrying homemade lanterns, or ones purchased for the occasion.

The City Feed on Centre will host a similar workshop on Thursday from 4-7 p.m. where, for a donation, you can either get a kit to create a new lantern or get one that's already been created.

4. JP Business and Professional Association Facebook Page: The local business group has a new Facebook page, which I encourage everyone to "like" if you're a fan of our small neighborhood businesses.

5. Reality Show Open Call: Casting for a new reality series on TNT with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is happening in Boston this Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Jillians, 3 Lansdowne Street in Boston.
