Suffolk Downs Documentary

Join us on May 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the East Boston Public Library for the screening of “Suffolk Downs: A Race Through Time”.

May 16, 2024
2024-05-16T17:30:38 - 2024-05-16T19:30:00

Join us on May 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the East Boston Public Library for the screening of “Suffolk Downs: A Race Through Time”, a documentary film about the history of Suffolk Downs. The HYM Investment Group, owner and developer of the site since 2017, has created a film that details the history of the horse racing site over the decades, the activations happening onsite today, and the plans for the future as redevelopment begins.

The film begins with the building of Suffolk Downs, the legalization of betting in Massachusetts and the chronicled rise and fall of horse racing. Stories are told about the owners of the track over the years, the horses and jockeys that raced there, the concerts and events that drew in the crowds, the economic viability of the site over the years, and the legacy this site will always have. Interviews are captured with jockeys, employees of the racetrack, writers, journalists, the former Mayor of Revere, and the current property owner and developer. Jumping ahead, the film transitions to the use of the site today, following the final race in June of 2019, and The HYM Investment Group’s vision for a diverse community that will continue to develop for the next 15-20 years.

Guests are encouraged to arrive between 5:30 - 6 p.m.. The screening itself will begin promptly at 6 p.m. with a brief speaking program.

Perfect For Everybody and every body! Each Zumba® class is designed to bring people together to sweat it on. How It Works We take the "work" out of workout, by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party. Once the Latin and World rhythms take over, you'll see why Zumba® Fitness classes are often called exercise in disguise. Super effective? Check. Super fun? Check and check.
