My family loves L.L. Bean, especially that signature boot that sits outside their flagship store in Freeport, Maine.  So, this family-friendly event taking place on April 14th, 2012 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m on the Boston Common (Corner of Boylston & Tremont Streets) looks like it’ll be a lot of fun.

Here are the details, from their press materials:

“With the Bootmobile as the backdrop, expert guides from L.L.Bean’s Outdoor Discovery Schools® will lead various family-friendly – and free – outdoor activities on the Common. Participants will have the chance to try their hand at fly-casting, knot-tying and several backyard-style games, as well as hang-out at a mock campsite and learn a thing or two about tent set-up. These events are intended to get children and families excited about the outdoors and being active.”.
