Enjoy a morning full of hands on learning adventures. You can pull up a lobster trap, get your lifejacket fitted, and master the bowline knot. See how to become a Jr. Ranger, hear the history of the islands, find mini-creatures in a tide pool, learn how to hoist a sail. Budding ecologists can find out how to save water this summer. You can also experience Hingham Harbor on a mini cruise. It's not often you can eat pancakes, get your face painted, learn how to surf, collect treasure, create a paper plate aquarium, build a sandcastle, win a balloon sword fight, eat ice cream and dance with your friends -- all before noon.

Come support an event that brings together friends and neighbors of all ages to celebrate the upcoming summer season and appreciate this unique and beautiful waterfront.

Saturday, May 31, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. All ages. Free. Hingham Harbor, Route 3A, Hingham.
