Boston Gets the Boot(mobile)
Don’t be alarmed if you see a giant L.L. Bean boot cruising the city streets this weekend.
Attention L.L. Bean lovers: the Bootmobile is coming to Boston.
As part of its 100th birthday celebration, the Maine-based outdoor outfitter has constructed a painted foam-and-fiberglass boot-truck (the laces are made from tug boat mooring rope) — it will roll into the Hub this weekend:
- Friday: From 12-4 p.m., the Bootmobile will grace Kenmore Square for opening day at Fenway.
- Saturday: Hit the shoe-shaped vehicle in the Common from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., for fly casting lessons and other outdoor activities.
- Sunday: The Bootmobile will visit two L.L. Bean stores: Dedham (10 a.m.-2 p.m.) and Mansfield (3-7 p.m.)
- Monday: Burlington’s L.L. Bean store will host the mobile at 9 a.m., before it heads to the Lexington Patriots Day parade at 2 p.m.
Don’t miss out on this silly sight — L.L. Bean will donate one dollar to the National Park Foundation for every person who stops by the shoe.
