Our late-season surge of summery weather sets the stage for another event-filled weekend. Eastham launches its 37th annual Windmill Weekend, featuring a vehicle show, a pancake breakfast, a tricycle race, the Windmill Weekend Parade, and more.
Labor Day was first made a holiday by the state of Oregon in 1887. By 1894, thirty states had recognized Labor Day, and it became a national holiday. That's a little bit of history. But the Town of Barnstable is using a lot of history to commemorate this year's Labor Day weekend, as it continues marking its 375th anniversary year, this time with a fireworks display on Saturday night.
Who says summer's end is within sight? Plenty of great outdoor events continue across the Cape and Islands this weekend. The Cape Cod Five Pops in the Park celebrates its 25th anniversary concert this Saturday with maestro Jung Ho Pak, and vocal contributions from, among others, Dennis-Yarmouth grad Fred Inkley. As part of an art project, visitors to the Provincetown Library will be encouraged to do something unusual – scrawl some graffiti!
The weather forecast may not corroborate this - but this weekend should be great, if you're heading out to enjoy music, film, or theater. There is a lot going on. There’s a new music festival launching in our corner of the world, and it’s on Nantucket - the Nantucket Music Festival has almost twenty acts and two days of music.
The whitewater rapids of summer keep racing us forward, swooshing from one great event to the next fun activity. In Centerville this weekend you can eat your fill of baklava and souvlaki, plus get your dance on, with the Grecian Festival. Falmouth presents the Cultural Survival Bazaar, with great food and cultural crafts from around the world.
Provincetown Harbor is going to look like another century this weekend - and that means plenty of fun activities. Not only is the restored whaleship Charles W. Morgan visiting, but also a Tall Ship of Delaware, the Kalmar Nyckel, and many events are programmed around the boats' visits.
