The 34th annual Wake Up the Earth Festival was held today at Southwest Corridor Park near the Stonybrook T stop in Boston’s Jamaica Plain neighborhood. It featured a parade and maypole dance, as well as music and vendors. As organizer Spontaneous Celebrations notes, the festival “began in 1979 when a group of local neighbors and activists banded together to stop the Interstate 95 expansion into Jamaica Plain. The festival began as, and still is, a celebration of what can be accomplished when people of all traditions, cultures, ages, and beliefs come together.”
