September 15, 2017
An eclectic mix of events greets us in the Week Ahead. September has thus far has brought us weather perfect for almost any outdoor activity. With any luck this trend will continue as we get set to enjoy events including tours, Oak Bluffs annual street fair, sporting events, and getting gardens ship shape for the fall and winter ahead. Also taking advantage of the mild and sunny weather are the Martha’s Vineyard Striped bass and Bluefish Derby participants who we understand are weighing in mightily as this annual fishing completion continues into its second week. However and wherever you are passing the month of September, enjoy the Week Ahead!
