Boston Aug 09-14 Events

We are going to be in Boston from Aug 9th to the 14th. Are there any special events going on in the area that are a must see or do? I will be traveling with family with children ages 1, 3 and 6.

The boats usually travel an hour or more out to sea before there are any whale sightings. Then after seeing the whales (hopefully!), it's another hour or more back to port. That's a long travel time for most everyone, but especially for little kids.

Just jumping in to clarify that the SoWa Market is located in the South End neighborhood of Boston, not South Boston as noted in #1 above. confusing, I know!

Thanks Southiegirl for clearing that up. I will not make the mistake of calling someone from the South End a Southie. =)
