The Lowell Folk Festival is here and we expect to be out there dancing ourselves silly all weekend. Signed copies of Twirling Jennies are available at COOL Place, 122 Merrimack Street, right next door to El Potro Restaurant and smack dab in the middle of the Festival. Their extended hours for this weekend are 11–7 on Saturday and 12–6 on Sunday.
Also, if you’re a fan of Lowell history, I recommend checking back here in a couple of weeks. I’ve got several pages of additional research and photos regarding three area residents and two buildings (all nineteenth century) that are almost ready to go online.
