Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
This is an all ages event, families are encouraged! Though a few stops might include some beer & wine for the 21+ attendees there are plenty of stops with sweets & treats for all.
What are my transportation/parking options?
There will be FREE parking at the Channelside Parking Lot, 284 A Street, for all participating Holiday Strollers. This is accessible by public transportation as well. The Courthouse Station of the Silver Line is the closest stop but it's also an easy walk from South Station and the 7 or 11 bus lines. There are also water taxi stops on the Fort Point Channel that you can walk over to the event from. If you need an address to put in your map, try 370 Congress St.
How can I get involved volunteering, showing my art work or another Fort Point idea?
