The Week Ahead: Friday, October 13 through Thursday, October 19, 2017
October 13, 2017
The 72nd MV Striped Bass & Bluefish Derby ends in the Week Ahead, celebrating winners, participants and community at its traditional awards ceremony. Taking place on Sunday, October 15th, the Farm Neck Golf welcomes all comers to an afternoon of fun, prizes, and fish tales of lure and lore. Also noteworthy in the coming weekend is Morning Glory Farm’s Annual Pumpkin Festival, as the Island’s attention pivots to the upcoming fall holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving and the harvest season. Appropriately, the week’s end brings us to Fresh Off the Farm, the Vineyard Gazette sponsored kick-off to the much anticipated and much loved MV Food and Wine Festival. A locavore’s delight, the event, held in West Tisbury’s Agricultural Hall, highlights the harvest transformed by the talents of local chefs, caterers and cooks. Enjoy and partake generously of the Week Ahead!
