Here’s a Flag Day freebie for you.

The Boston Harbor Alliance is offering free ferry rides this Sunday to Spectacle and Georges Islands. Simply register online at Harbor Islands Express, and select your return and departure times. Then, plan to spend a relaxing day on one of the city’s oases.

Normally, the cruises run $14 for adults and $8 for children, each way, so families looking for a Sunday picnic spot this weekend are sure to be taking advantage in large numbers. Seeing as it is Flag Day, of course, the Alliance is encouraging riders to wear red, white, and blue to show their patriotic spirit.
