Spring Happenings

Selections to Satiate

April 24th, 2013

Spring in Provincetown has such a broad swath of activities that no matter how you like to relax, you'll find something wonderful to do! For the nature lover, the town plays host to the 3rd Annual APPEARANCES: Provincetown Eco-arts Festival , being held from April 19-28th! Founded by Trustee Dorothy Palanza to raise environmental awareness and foster progressive, diverse art, the festival is sponsored by the Provincetown Conservation Trust, and hosted at Dunes Edge by the Trustees of Reservations. Activities will include poetry readings, film showings, demonstrations, performances, lectures and a seed and plant exchange at both Dunes Edge and various sites around town. See the web link above for a full schedule.

Another sign of the season…the ferries will start running in mid-May!

Are you a fan of country dancing? Gays for Patsy, a group promoting country-western dancing in a supportive space for the LGBT community, will hold their annual "Stomp! 2013" fundraiser/hoedown weekend, April 26-28. Events include Saturday dance workshops, two dances, a dinner at the Crown and Anchor and Sunday brunch at Fanizzi's. See their web site for details and registration.

Restaurant opening parties are popping up like daffodils! Come down for a day or an overnight and catch the Central House opening party at the Crown and Anchor on May 6th, the Shipwreck Lounge opening party on May 13, and the Sal's Place party on May 22.

Runners of every stripe are gearing up for the annual Ragnar Relay on May 3-4. The relay runs from Hull to Provincetown, in which teams of 6 or 12 runners hits the road one person at a time. Each participant runs three times, with each leg ranging between 3-8 miles and varying in difficulty. Come cheer on the runners as they reach the finish line, celebrate and purchase Ragnar gear. A portion of the event proceeds benefits the Special Olympics. Those preferring a quick sprint can participate on May 4th in the Run to the Top -- of the 252-foot Pilgrim Monument, that is! Care to try breaking the average speed record of 4 minutes? Proceeds benefit the Cape Cod Firefighter/EMS Cancer Relief Fund.

The 10th Annual "Kibbles and Skits" dinner and revue will benefit the Carrie A. Seaman Animal Shelter (CASAS). Held on Saturday May 4th at 6 pm at the VFW, the $20 admission gets you a lavish buffet-style dinner, the food donated by many of our great restaurants, as well as entertainment by 13 different acts, including performances by folk singer Annie Rich, the delightful drag queen Chichi Royale, vocals with a humorous twist by singer Susan Mitchell and many more.
