The Week Ahead: Friday, September 23 through Thursday, September 29, 2016
September 23, 2016
Welcome to the first full week of autumn! Weather-wise, unless we’re in for a rapid change, thus far the season could easily be mistaken for summer. Appropriately, there are still many activities on our calendar encouraging us to be outdoors to enjoy the sun, sea and socializing. New this year is the first ever Island craft beer festival and later in the week, the Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival unites Martha’s Vineyard with film buffs from around the world. Indoors or out, whatever the season, enjoy the Week Ahead!
