The anticipation is mounting as the Boston Marathon makes its approach on Monday, April 16th. For family fun, food, and music, head to the 6 Mile Moment, located in both the east and west parking lots of Depot 417, near the intersection of Routes 126 and 135. This is the perfect perch to cheer on thousands of dedicated runners who are raising money for charity.
The 6 Mile Moment, powered by MediaBoss, occurs from 8:00 am until 1:30 pm. Presented by Avidia Bank, attendees in the east parking lot can enjoy great giveaways, including gift cards to Exhibit A Brewing Company, Sofa Café, Garmin GPS watches, an Ultimate Runners Prize Pack and more. If you're stressed, relax and enjoy a free chair massage or just appreciate Avidia Bank's swag - from ponchos to sunglasses - that will help you manage our unpredictable weather.
Framingham's own Dulce D Leche will also be on hand, with plenty of gelato and treats for sale. Whatever the weather, this team will have your perfect delight!
Not to be outdone, Jenny the Juggler will entertain kids and adults in the east parking lot. Jenny will bring colorful face painting, music, magic, and more!
In the west parking lot, MediaBoss will provide a world-wide live video stream along with great beats from DJ Haze and interviews of City officials. And for the first time, we're hosting a special cheering section for Team Framingham, enabling friends and family to gather together and cheer on their dear runners.
