Forget a bar crawl—Somerville, Cambridge, and Boston are teaming up to host an MBTA crawl.

On September 15, ONEin3 Boston, Cambriville Connects, and officials from Somerville plan to show off what each city has to offer by organizing the “Red Line Ride,” a three-city tour of some of the most notable places and activities that can be found immediately after stepping off of the trains that run through each area.

Event organizers will highlight local businesses, organizations, and activities, including lawn games, bike rides, cupcake decorating, and eating dumplings. “There is something for everyone,” according to the event’s Facebook page. “Grab a few friends, make a few friends and join the party as we come together to celebrate the Red Line.”

Nearly 100 people have already committed to going to the event, according to the Facebook page dedicated to promoting the full-day ride through the three cities.

The first stop of the Red Line Ride tour is South Station, where people will meet and kick off the day with music, lawn games, and food. The group will then venture to Downtown Crossing, Kendall and Central Square, and end the afternoon in Davis Square, for their Somerville stop.

The tour starts at noon at South Station and ends at 4 p.m. in Davis Square. For more information about activities throughout the day, visit the Red Line Ride event page.

Below is the detailed list of planned events:
