Lynnside Out: Building Community
Celebrating Unity Through Diversity
Last weekend, we were thrilled to witness an unprecedented turnout at this year’s Lynnside Out, making it an event for the books! The atmosphere was electric as residents from all corners of Lynn gathered to engage with City Hall departments, local businesses, and artisans.
This year marked the second time Creative Collective collaborated with Mayor Nicholson’s office for Lynnside Out—an initiative designed to bring City Hall to the streets for more accessible, transparent community engagement. The purpose of this event is multi-layered: it’s not just about enjoyment, but also about providing a platform for residents to communicate directly with the people shaping the future of Lynn.

A Community in Action
The success of Lynnside Out is a powerful reminder of what can be achieved when a community comes together. It was a day filled with meaningful connections, artistic exploration, and a shared love for our city. A big thank you to all attendees, vendors, volunteers, and City Hall departments who made this event memorable.
