Arts, Crafts, Games and More on Main Campus

The Boston College Main Campus will be bustling during the next three days with events and activities for all ages, ranging from music and dance to arts and crafts, as well as the annual preview of the Eagles' football team.

Today through Saturday, the fourth annual Boston College Arts Festival will offer a slate of concerts, theatrical performances, readings, lectures, dance and art exhibitions, and many other events.

The third day added to this year's festival will have a particularly family-friendly atmosphere, with arts and crafts activities, a story hour and a selection of theatrical scenes geared toward children.

Schedules and other details about the event are available at the Arts Festival World Wide Web site,

Saturday will see another family-oriented event when the BC Athletic and Alumni associations host Family Fun Day 2002 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on the Flynn Recreation Complex patio. A range of activities will be available, including swimming, face-painting and other amusements, and BC cheerleaders and mascots will be on hand.

BC athletic teams will be in action that day, with a baseball-softball double-header on Shea Field beginning at noon. At 1 p.m., the annual Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football Game will take place in Alumni Stadium.
