Weekend Outlook: Cardboard Boats, Plein Air Painting, & more

Aug 3, 2017

August launches with many activities, including festivals for painting, movies, and books. And then there's the cardboard boat competition! Here's your Weekend Outlook. 

Steve Junker and Kathi Scrizzi Driscoll discuss upcoming events on WCAI's All Things Considered.

If you’re in Sandwich on Friday, you might want to keep an eye out for people standing outside in turquoise T-shirts and take a closer look at what they’re doing. It's the Sandwhich Arts Alliance's first en plein air festival. More info.

There’s an event Saturday in West Dennis that’s called a “challenge” for a reason: You have to send people out on the water in a boat made out of cardboard. More info.

Martha’s Vineyard is a busy place this week. There’s a book festival this weekend, then a film festival begins on Monday, and social issues come up with both.
