Art Beat, one of Somerville’s oldest arts festivals will see artists and performers interpret this year’s theme: loops. The events lined up include hoola hooping, stilting workshops and a large loop – knitting event. Not only is Art Beat trying to bring in fresh talent from the Somerville area but is also making it a more diverse community event.

The Mystic Watershed Association is welcoming many hands to help their clean up efforts. These headlines and more in the next Somerville Neighborhood News.
