  • Tickets are free, but limited.

🧘🏽 For something lowkey, try Friday Night Yoga at the Museum of Modern Renaissance in Somerville, 7pm-8:30pm.

  • Price: $35.


🕊️ Mass Audubon throws a "pigeon party" — an afternoon walk at the Boston Nature Center and Wildlife Sanctuary in Mattapan discussing the humble pigeon, 10:30am-12pm.

Celebrate "Star Wars'" 47th birthday with a May the Fourth brunch at the Summer Shack in Cambridge, 11:30am-3pm.
