Fourth of July, Cape Cod Style

The Fourth of July on Cape Cod conjures lots of classic images, of simpler pleasures and simpler times. Of parades large and small - from the humongous Chatham Parade Extravaganza to the neighborhood parades that can be found in so many towns and villages across Cape Cod. Including right here in our own Old Mill Point.

This year's parade will kick off at the corner of Sea Way and Pine Lane in front of Sam and Jenn Massoni's home. Parade enthusiasts should gather at 5:50 for a prompt 6 p.m. start. There will be prizes awarded and popsicles for all!

There are plenty of beach parties and craft fairs to attend, as well as sparkling ocean views and fabulous displays of fireworks ... there's something for everyone on Cape Cod in the summertime, but especially at Fourth of July.

Even though the Fourth of July lands on a Thursday this year, the fun lasts all week on the Cape. And especially throughout the long holiday weekend. The annual Harwich July Craft Fair will be going on July 5th through the 7th - Friday, Saturday and Sunday - at Brooks Park at the corner of Main Street and Oak Street.

I will be at Brooks Park Saturday morning in a tent with a gaggle of local authors, and copies of SON OF A MERMAID to sign and sell. If you happen to be on Cape Cod for the holiday week or weekend, stop by and say hi - I'd love to chat with you!
