The Week Ahead: Friday, June 16 through Thursday, June 22, 2017
June 16, 2017
Summer is on a roll on Martha’s Vineyard with the Week Ahead hosting not just one but two summer solstice celebrations – just so we don’t overlook the fact that summer has really started. And if that’s not enough to drive this happy fact home, the Oak Bluffs Harbor will be hosting crowds of revelers at the annual Harbor Festival where all the summer smells, tastes and trimmings combine to create the perfect season opener. For Father’s Day the Island rolls out a Bluegrass BBQ at the FARM Institute, 3rd Annual Father’s Day Car-B-Q Classic Auto Show at the Harbor View Hotel. Visit our Calendar of Events for others ways to celebrate Dad and the Week Ahead.
