PAPS at the 8th Annual Whaleboat Regatta on the Charles River - Boston Portuguese Festival
on Tuesday, 04/06/2013 —

May and June are rich in Portuguese events in Boston! The Boston Portuguese Festival takes place every year and celebrates the Portuguese Community in Massachusetts. Among other events, we had the XIV PAPS Forum on May 11th (you can read more about it in the next newsletter), we'll have the Day of Portugal Parade on June 23rd and the 8th Annual Whaleboat Regatta on the Charles River last Sunday, June 2nd. To learn more about the BPF, visit http://www.bostonportuguesefestival.org/.

PAPS was represented in the Regatta by 2 teams formed by the newly arrived students of the Lisbon MBA (a program organized in partnership with Universidade Católica, Universidade Nova de Lisboa and MIT) and also by 2 Boston PAPS members, Joana Caiado and Joana Soares, who integrated a MIT team. It was a great event that gathered not only the Portuguese community but also American participants! You can find more photos of the event here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151455610043016.1073741835.299520043015&type=1

We are looking forward to the next events and we hope to see many PAPS members there!
