Rose Garden Party | June 28

Mayor Thomas M. Menino and First Lady Angela Menino host the 16th Annual Rose Garden Party in the Back Bay Fens from 5:30p to 8:00p. Prizes will be auctioned during the party. Grand prize being auctioned off at this party is a travel package valued at $5,000 offered by Jet Blue. Guests are encouraged to wear garden party attire and enter the "Hats Galore!" contest. Money raised at this event gets people outside because it pays in part for some of the 170 free programs in city parks including jazz concerts at Fort Hill, a kid's festival at Franklin Park, and a watercolor workshop at Geneva Cliffs.
