More fireworks and plenty of performing arts and exhibits to take in, check out Marblehead Patch's picks for the top 5 things to do this weekend.
Look - There will be fireworks over the harbor Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Peter Lynch's daughter Elizabeth to French count and lawyer Gonzaque Marie de Montrichard of Paris. Preparations can be seen from the tip of Marblehead Neck and include tenting and staging areas. Insiders have said it is expected to be quite the gala, similar to Lynch's first daughter's marriage two years ago. According to Harbormaster Charlie Dalferro, the family has permits for the fireworks and everything is ready to go. Best vantage points are Fort Sewall and Crocker Park.
Sing - Some of the area's most talented musicians will be singing in "Ob-la-di Ob-la-da" on Saturday night at the Unitarian Universalist Church. Tickets are available on the church Website: $20 adults, $10 student, $45 family package. Part of the proceeds from this concert go directly to a special fund to send musicians into local schools for workshops and concerts as well as to benefit programs at the church. Contributions can also be made out to UUCM and sent directly to the church at 28 Mugford St., Marblehead, MA 01945.
Reflect - Ceremony, Conscious Convergence Sun Circle on Saturday from 11 to noon at Beach Bluff Park on the Marblehead/Swampscott line. This is part of a global effort to unite all seekers to envision a positive evolution. The event is timed to the entrance into the ninth wave of the Mayan calendar. Participants will share in a guided meditation by Don Orne celebrating the elements. The public is invited to attend. Bring drums, a chair, fruit and water to share. Orne's readings will include an original poem, shared intention and a pledge by David Ault. Rain date is Sunday.
Listen - On Sunday at 3 p.m. ,St. Stephen's United Methodist Church will host a piano, cello and violin concert. Stephen Baker, Meeyoung Choi and Hyunjoo Kee will perform a piano, cello and violin concert, open to the public. A free-will offering will be collected to benefit national and international missions.
Travel - "Places" are paintings by Ferko Lakato, which are showing in the Virginia A. Carten Gallery. Subjects include locations in New England, Italy, Greece, Croatia and Serbia. The artist's paintings place the viewer in settings of strong impact and contrasting mood.
