Your Week Ahead

5 things to do in Boston the week of June 1

Pride Week, the Impressionists’ new MFA home, and a river festival relocating blocks from the Charles.

TAKE IT OUTSIDE

  • Starting Monday > June 2-August 30

  • The city of Boston is offering free exercise classes in 18 parks this summer for residents and nonresidents alike. Yoga’s on Thursdays at Frog Pond, line dancing on Wednesdays in Franklin Park — and loads more. (See the full schedule at bostonmovesforhealth.org; click on Community Calendar.) Get a free footstep counter and try Zumba or boot camp at the program’s launch party Monday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Christopher Columbus Park in the North End.


TOGETHER AGAIN

  • Starting Wednesday > June 4

  • Monet’s cottage on a cliff, Van Gogh’s bearded postman, and Renoir’s Dance at Bougival — recently returned from a show touring Japan — are moving back in together in the just-renovated Museum of Fine Arts’ gallery dedicated to French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. Just don’t get too attached to the 39 pieces on display, as other works will rotate in and out of the room. mfa.org

RIVER? WHAT RIVER?

  • Saturday > June 7

  • From noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, the free Cambridge River Festival will NOT occur along the banks of the Charles River. Instead, it will take over Central Square. It’s a temporary location for the festival’s 35th year — with performances at multiple stages, food, and even a beer garden. cambridgema.gov/arts

CALLING ALL CONE HEADS
