On Saturday residents of Roxbury and Jamaica Plain will celebrate 35-years of Wake Up the Earth gatherings with parades, vendors, activities, and community groups.
The yearly event, put on by Spontaneous Celebrations, brings together residents from across the community to celebrate the neighborhoods’ green spaces with a particular emphasis of the Southwest Corridor, which cuts through Jamaica Plain, Roxbury, Mission Hill, and the South End.
On Saturday separate parades from Centre Street in Jamaica Plain, Egelston Square, and Dudley Square will meet at Jackson Square to join together and proceed to the park across from the Stony Brook MBTA Station, where the day-long festival will be held.
Throughout the day there will be food, music, family activities, and information booths at the festival grounds.
