It’s time to add some fun into your schedule. The City of Boston is partaking in the first International Day of Play on Tuesday, June 11, 10 a.m.-2 p.m, at City Hall Plaza.

The campaign is an effort coordinated by LEGO Group and the LEGO Foundation. The event honors and respects play as an important part of growing up — and being a grown-up — that helps in a child’s development and social well-being.

During the family-friendly celebration, the city will provide activities and supplies so locals can use their imagination and just have fun. Think crafts, music, games, bubbles, and dancing.
