WOW!! $50 a ticket. They must pay you well to recommend this event to families. What makes you think a family of four can afford this plus drive into Boston, even at these gas prices. You need to start thinking more like your readers here in central massachusetts

I agree. It is pricey! Just putting it out there for anyone who may be interested. Our print calendar focuses on free and reasonably-priced events, so this is just extra FYI.
Thanks for writing.
