Newton Al Fresco, an initiative started in 2020 to bring outdoor dining to local restaurants, is returning on April 1. The project will allow restaurants to convert open spaces into outdoor dining areas decorated by local artists.
“We’re just a very vibrant, artistic, and cultural community,” Gannon said. “It was pretty easy for me to tap into this and get people to come forward to help, and I’ll tell you they came running. It was really great to see how everyone was willing to support our community.”
