Everyone loves a fun holiday! Take part in one of Boston’s biggest traditions on March 18th by attending the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston! The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is the fact that spring begins only days after the parade! Get in the Irish spirit and party your way all over Boston!

2. March for Our Lives on March 24

I love how my generation is the generation pushing for changes within America. This cause started as a result of the Parkland, Florida mass shooting and communities all over America will be taking action in Boston Common on March 24. Getting involved is a key aspect of growing up and being right in the city it is so easy to find ways to get involved with what you believe in.

3. Sebastian Maniscalco’s Stay Hungry Tour on March 31

Who doesn’t like to laugh? Comedy shows are a great way to spend a night out with some friends. Sebastian Maniscalco has his Aren’t You Embarrassed? Stand-up routine on Netflix and his jokes are hysterical. If you can grab tickets to one of his shows I would say it is totally 100% worth every penny.  

4. BU Men’s Lacrosse Versus Army on April 7

Show some school spirit and cheer on the men’s lacrosse team against Army! Lacrosse just screams “SPRING IS HERE” to me. I can’t wait to hear the practices outside my dorm! Make sure to get some tickets for a game or two during the season to cheer on BU! Bonus: student tickets are free with your BU ID!

5. Watch the Boston Marathon on April 16

Ever since I applied to BU, I have heard about how fun Marathon Monday is. I’ve been told that you feel the community come together for a day of fun and cheering! Immerse yourself in Boston’s culture and become a true Bostonian!

This year, BU’s relay for life is turning 10! On their Facebook, BU’s Relay for Life invites every to “join us for a memorable night as we fight cancer all night at our tenth Boston University Relay For Life! Relay for Life is the largest fundraising event on campus, and we want to make this our best year yet. It’s an amazing night of live music, fun activities, dodgeball tournaments, Zumba, and most of all, so much love and hope. All of the money raised goes directly to the American Cancer Society and can make a huge difference in a cancer patient’s life. #MoreBirthdays”

I don’t know much about this one, but I do have a friend who has gone to it and said it is hysterical. The concept seems great and there are multiple dates available throughout the year. Plus isn’t everything funnier sh*t-faced?

9. Kygo’s Kids in Love Tour on May 12

End the semester with a bang! Concerts aren’t for everyone, but if they are, a Kygo concert sounds like a great way to end an amazing year at TD Garden! Prepare yourself for a summer full of fun by starting it off right with music, fun, and friends!

There is so much to do in Boston during the Spring! Take advantage of the time you have in this gorgeous city when it isn’t below freezing! Enjoy the end of the semester with some fun adventures!
