Does anyone out there remember when the Six Flags in western MA was Riverside Park?  Or how about Mountain Park?  Well they were the go-to places for fun when I was a child (about 60 years ago) and one of the favorite rides was always the carousel.  For some reason I feel that my favorite […]

Boys of Summer

Throwback Thursday is just what the title implies!  We’d love to have you share some of your family pictures and memories with us.  Yes, we know that today is not Thursday but this blog needed to be posted before the Cape Cod Baseball League comes to an end.   We will begin by sharing one […]

Eat Fresh – Eat Local

Fresh produce is always a tasty and healthy choice to make.  Did you know that the Cape has a number of Farmer’s Markets from Falmouth to Provincetown?  Although most of them close by the end of October, some venues operate in the “off season”.  Each town holds these on designated days of the week and […]

What's In Your Plan?

            Celebrating the 4th of July on Cape Cod is fun and provides us a glimpse of small towns with enormous patriotism.  Of course there will be fireworks from Bourne to Provincetown but there will be parades on both land and water, sing alongs and concerts.  The following are just a […]

Back In The Day…..

Carousel of Light

Falmouth is home to the famous Carousel of Light.   It is located on the grounds of the Mullen Hall School on Katherine Lee Bates Rd.  This is one of the few hand carved carousels in America.  Falmouth artist Lance Shinkle designed and created this beginning in 1988 by first using a chainsaw on reclaimed […]

Got Strawberries?

Some of our fondest memories growing up were of going to our annual church fair in June. Well here’s an idea for you. On June 17th, St. Barnabas Church in Falmouth holds its annual Strawberry Festival.  The admission is FREE and you’ll find all sorts of activities for the whole family in addition to baked […]
