In June tall sunflowers lean at noon for tender hallucinations of little infants playing there with wagons.
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.
We never know if at the last minute a room at the UMass Inn and Conference Center will be available, but it is worth checking with them. That facility is located on the outer perimeter of the downtown area where most of our events are located.
