New location for the Saturday morning Commemorative: Boott Mills

The location of the Commemorative at the Commemorative on Saturday morning at 9:30am has changed because of weather.

The new location: Boott Cotton Mills, 115 John Street (just a block away from the park).

After crossing over the canal, walk into the Boott Mills complex and turn right. At the end of the courtyard, enter the door at the far end of the building (southeast corner). Take the elevator to the second floor.

Hotel Information for October Festival

Ten rooms have been set aside for the Friday and Saturday of the festival weekend at the Courtyard-Marriott in Lowell. This hotel is not in the downtown area, where all the events will be taking place, so you would still need transportation to the downtown area.

The rates will be $89 per night, not including state and local taxes; currently 11.7%. Call 1-800-321-2211 by Friday, September 19 to reserve one of these rooms.

Full 2014 LCK Festival schedule is online

Everybody goes home in October. And so should you. Come home to Lowell on October 9 to 13 for the 2014 Lowell Celebrates Kerouac Festival. The full schedule is set (though it will surely change in small doses) at www.lowellcelebrateskerouac.org/festival.

Memorial service for Larry Carradini

Former Lowell Celebrates Kerouac! president Larry Lawrence Carradini passed away peacefully on April 30. A memorial for Larry will be held at the Morse-Bayliss Funeral Home in Lowell. Calling hours will be from 4 to 7 p.m. followed by a brief service at 7 p.m.
