Boston is going to be in full swing this weekend – with great weather, the Celtics’ second-round playoff games at TD Garden and the return of outdoor dining to the city’s North End neighborhood.

People still have to wait until Sunday for this year’s first tastes of outdoor Chianti and cannelloni, but crews put up plastic barriers along Hanover Street on Friday, filling them with water and setting up tables and chairs.

Outdoor dining returned to other Boston neighborhoods on April 1. But under city rules, restaurants in the North End must wait until May 1 and 67 of them paid a $7,500 fee.

“I think it’s so nice to be outside, even if it’s chilly, and get the chance to sit down and hang out together,” Cambridge resident Kate Peksa said.

There are also new city rules specifying exactly how much street space each outdoor patio can use.

“Well, the city has very strict parameters in place, so there’s plenty of room for traffic to move through the neighborhood, a place for trash to go at night so collection is easier and we can maintain a certain flow of delivery,” Property COO JJ Fadden said.

Restaurants expect to be very busy during and after the Celtics’ 1 p.m. Sunday playoff game against the Milwaukee Bucks, and for many, hiring kitchen and wait staff remains a challenge.
