For those that haven't been to the hidden strand of sand called Tenean, this Saturday's the time to go. From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. the Tenean Beach Association will be holding water races, face painting and giving out free refreshments all the sounds of a DJ.
High tide is at 1 p.m. The festival, the beaches' first in recent memory but one of 11 happening along the urban beaches in Greater Boston, is dedicated to the memory of Mike Leahy, a civic activist who recently passed.
"Michael founded the Tenean Beach Association shortly before he passed," his children wrote in an email promoting the event. "His goal was to get people back to his beloved beach and he had already started planning Tenean Beach Day." For a full schedule of this summer's beach events, see savetheharbor.org/beaches .
