It’s not too early to mark your calendar for the upcoming holiday strolls throughout the Cape and the Islands. The Cape bustles every weekend starting November 23rd, right through to January 1st.
The Nantucket Christmas Stroll (November 30 through December 2, 2012) is a feast for the eyes as the entire main street is alive with color, light, concerts and carolers.
On the mainland, my favorite events include the charming Route 6A strolls of:
- Brewster (12/01/12 to 12/02/12)
- Chatham (12/07/12 to 12/08/12)
- Dennis (12/09/12)
- Orleans (11/24/12 to 12/31/12)
- Osterville (12/14/12)
- Yarmouthport (12/02/12)
All provide free B&B Inn tours (decorated in full holiday spirit), live music, and holiday refreshments. To learn more about holiday festivities on Cape Cod see Christmas on Cape Cod and the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce event calendar for December.
Not to be outdone by the Cape and Nantucket, Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard celebrates its annual Christmas in Edgartown the weekend of December 7 to 9, 2012. Enjoy holiday events and shopping and even the 28th annual Great Chowder Contest.
Note the Cape Cod Resort and Spa’s exciting holiday calendar, including The Enchanted Village, concerts, ice sculpting demos, caroling, visits from Santa, and much more!
