Faneuil Hall Marketplace may be coming off the high of its official 40th anniversary celebration, but the fun doesn’t stop there. On Mondays and Saturdays at 11 a.m., meet across from the venerable Salty Dog Seafood Grille & Bar and join a free Quincy Market History Tour to get the inside scoop on the 1826 edifice that is the area’s centerpiece. On August 31 from 5:30–7 p.m., the Blitz Chess Tournament takes place outside Uniqlo’s entrance to challenge Garry Kasparov wannabes. For the kids, storyteller Alan White delights young and old alike on August 30 at 10:30 a.m., while a puppet show entertains the little ones on Saturdays from 10:30–11:30 a.m. Don’t miss Salsa Night in the South Market area on September 6 at 5:30 p.m. and Mega Musical Chairs in the west side of the marketplace on September 8, also at 5:30 p.m. And, as always, street performers dazzle the crowds all day with daring feats sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. All of this and the usual tempting array of food and shops make Faneuil Hall Marketplace the place to be as summer winds down.
