    Head of the Charles Regatta Weekend



    Over the past 46 years, the Head of the Charles regatta has grown tremendously. Today, more than 8,000 athletes from around the world compete in 55 different race events. The Regatta grew to a two-day event in 1997 and now attracts up to 300,000 spectators during the October weekend. We welcome you to Harvard Square and hope you will enjoy all that our shops, restaurants, cultural organizations and streets have to offer.

    "St. John the Divine in Iowa" is about an Episcopal priest known for her progressive sermons. But when her own daughter comes out and wants her to marry them, lots of issues crop up for all involved. Reverend Alex learns that it is easier to live up to your values when she's just the minister, not the mother. Another Country Films is a local independent group, founded by Lyralen Kaye. Lyralen has a long history as a producer, actor, director, teacher, as well as filmmaker.
