The Boston National Historic Park and The Bostonian Society are celebrating the completion of the recent restoration work with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, July 25 at 11:00 AM. U.S. Secretary of the Interior Dirk Kempthorne and National Park Service Director Mary Bomar will attend the ceremony on the plaza outside the Old State House. The construction project is the first to be completed under the National Park Service Centennial Initiative, which seeks to reinvigorate the country's national parks in time for the centennial of the National Park Service in 2016.

I'm fortunate enough to have some guest posts on Boston 1775 in the coming days on the skirmishes that occurred between the patriots and the British on Little Brewster Island, home to Boston Light, a very strategic target. Here's the first post and look for more in the coming days.

MONDAY, JULY 28 2:30 - 4:30 p.m. Afternoon practice
The practice is free to attend, and the parking is free as well. There are concession stands that sell food, drinks, and beer. Be prepared to pay normal stadium prices for food and beverages, however, if you buy it there. In past years parking has been in lot 22 along the west side of the stadium and it's a short walk over to the fields.
Along the west side of the stadium has also been the Patriots Experience, filled with interactive games that allow fans to test their kicking, passing, and tackling skills on a variety of obstacle courses, football tosses, and other similar challenges. It's a popular draw for kids. And while you're in the area, you may also want to check out the stores at the ever-expanding Patriot Place.
