Springtime events fill the weekend calendar. On Nantucket, the 40th Annual Nantucket Daffodil Flower Show highlights Daffodil Festival weekend, which also includes a parade of antique cars and the Daffy Dog Parade - it doesn't get any more traditional! Wareham is holding its first-ever Oyster Festival this weekend, which includes live music, artisans and crafters, paddleboats - and lots and lots of oysters. And there's a 100th birthday party in Cotuit on Sunday for a guest of honor named Magnolia. Who is she? She's a harp with a storied past and a musical pedigree! And Plimoth Plantation hosts a Herring Run festival this weekend, celebrating the springtime migration of alewives through Town Brook. It all starts on Friday evening with a screening of a documentary on herring migration, followed by a panel discussion.
Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll discuss events every Thursday during All Things Considered. You can hear this week's conversation here:
