WHAT: Celebrate Waltham! Members of the Waltham, Brandeis and Bentley communities gather to celebrate the innovation, healthy economy and diversity and that makes our city the best place to live in Massachusetts.

WHY: Money magazine named Waltham the best city in which to live in the Bay State. As Money noted:

One of the oldest cities in America, Waltham is located on the Charles River just 10 miles from central Boston. Its easy access to Route 128, the Massachusetts Turnpike, and Route 2—not to mention an MBTA station—makes commuting relatively easy. But residents don’t have to “head into town” for work; there are plenty of big employers within Waltham. Diversity is also a plus here: Approximately one in four residents was born outside the U.S. That’s reflected in the area’s restaurants, especially along the renowned Moody Street, where you can dine on everything from pho to tapas to tandoori kebabs.

WHERE: Napoli Room, Gosman Sports Center, Brandeis University, 415 South Street, Waltham

WHEN: Thursday, Feb. 15 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.

WHO: Waltham Mayor Jeannette McCarthy, Brandeis President Ron Liebowitz. Waltham High School’s award-winning show choir Music Unlimited will perform.
