Houghton’s Pond Cool Summer Fest

Enjoy wet and wild fun for the whole family! The heat is on at Houghton’s Pond this summer but we will stay cool with wacky water games, make and take kid crafts, music, dance, live wildlife, pond exploration, free fishing fun and more! (Free equipment loans for fishing or bring your own rod and reel!) A guaranteed good time for all! Email: summerfest@FriendsoftheBlueHills.org for more information. Many thanks to Blue Hills Bank for sponsoring this event!

Directions: Take Rt. 93 to exit 3 and follow Cool Summer Fest signs to DCR Houghton’s Pond Recreation Area at 840 Hillside Street, Milton.

    Perhaps, u can tke time to tell me about this event? How much to get in? What about parking?

    • Thanks so much for asking! This is a FREE event! The best place to park is at the main parking lot for Houghton’s Pond on Hillside Street (Milton). Houghton’s Pond picnic site 5 (where the activities are) is a short 5 to 10 minute walk from the main parking lot. Hope to see you there!

    I have a few questions about the festival – I have a rod but will hooks and bait be provided? I also want to know what type of fish you have at the pond.
