Newton Heritage Festivals

Newton Heritage Festivals

The Newton community is filled with diversity. People of all different races, heritages, cultures, and backgrounds come together to live in an accepting environment. In Newton there is a drive to learn about all types of cultures.

There are many heritage festivals sponsored by Newton Community Pride, throughout the summer to celebrate those different cultures. It is a great way to spend a Sunday evening with the family, enjoying various types of music. Each festival is located on Newton Center Green at 6:30pm. If you thought it couldn’t get any better, it’s completely free. But just be aware that if it is a rainy day, the event will be sadly cancelled.

Two successful festivals have already past, but it is not too late to join the celebration in the upcoming events. Earlier in July the New Black Eagle Jazz Band played some 1920′s and 30′s Jazz for us, from inspiring artists such as Armstrong. The American Chinese Art Society also put on a show full of traditional Chinese music and dance. If those seem fun, make sure you don’t miss the next ones coming soon.

Music for the Soul

Music for the Soul

On July 26 a band named The Reminisants will be with us to play music from the 1950′s up until the 90′s. That is such a wide range of music the whole family will be able to enjoy their night. If a 50 year span of music wasn’t enough, they play all different genres.

Los Sugar Kings will be playing music of Afro-Cuban roots, rock and reggae on August 2, so don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes. This night will be filled with Cuban, Salsa, and Rumba-Flamenca sound. You won’t leave without getting up for a dance.

These are all family friendly events and we hope you come enjoy your time with your own family.

Summer Aquatics
Why get all sweaty inside a gym, when you can exercise while you cool off?  Are you looking for more adventurous ways to stay fit?
Newton Parks & Recreation has many options for seniors to keep you entertained all summer long. All throughout July and August they are offering a summer aquatics program for adults over 55 years old that meets Monday through Friday for only $37. You won’t be able to beat that deal anywhere else. From 12:15 to 1:00 pm you can enjoy your afternoon on Crystal Lake with some friends while getting a rewarding workout. This is a great way to stay physically active without putting stress on your joints. Plus you don’t need to have any swimming skills, so anyone can feel safe to register.
Aquatics is especially good for seniors because it puts less stress on your body, so you can leave feeling refreshed instead of in pain.

Pools, beaches, and lakes have always been the best parts of summer (aside from cookouts of course), so why not incorporated that into your daily routine.

Oh, those amazing Victorian builders! Born during the Industrial Revolution, they embraced new materials and technologies to create houses like no one had ever seen before. Mass-production and mass-transit made ornamental parts affordable. Victorian architects and builders applied decoration liberally, combining features borrowed from

many different eras with flourishes from their own imaginations. ~About.com
