April 18, 2016 :: We're so jazzed that the Boston Marathon is almost here, y'all! The SIX MILE MOMENT is the runners' time to shine, and it's all happening right here! Won't you join us for the ultimate best view anywhere?
Watch and listen. This is a rad little show to get your blood pumping! We can't imagine a better way to kick off this 6 Mile Proud weekend than with this upbeat, hip living jukebox with a pretty cool bio.
On the morning of Marathon Monday, join us race side in Downtown Framingham! Set up your chairs and grab your favorite spot to watch the greatest race in the world. Settle in and grab a coffee and a gorgeous breakfast sandwich on the griddle under the tent made by Deluxe Depot Diner!
Jenny the Juggler will be on hand from 10AM till noon with face-painting, and join Danforth Art for some creative sign making, too! And this year we are excited to be joined by Saxonville's Fireseed Arts, creating a stir through their ENVIRONMENTAL ART with a REPURPOSE!
And no matter if you have to work that day, don't despair... You can tune into the live streamwww.sixmilemoment.com even before the race begins and watch all day long with Downtown Framingham production company MediaBoss Television behind the camera! (Check out the awesome footage produced by MediaBoss below!)
You just want to feel this 6 Mile Moment!
Stay and celebrate!
The race might be over, but don't leave in such a hurry! After-party-it-up at Amazing Things Arts Center with Afro Celtic Funk, Soulsha. Our vintage firehouse will throw up the sashes and open up the front doors for some dancing in the streets yo. Watch and listen. Starting at 3PM and running till 5PM.
We hope you will join us and stay long after to grab a bite to eat at one of our many fabulous restaurants and cafes! From ethnic to Americana, you'll find it here. Take a look around and see the comeback of Downtown Framingham, and meet people who come here from all over the world.
This year's savings guide is full of lots of great deals from our generous small businesses. Find it at the Six Mile Moment tent and keep your eyes open for it in Friday's Framingham TAB.
