The Week Ahead: Friday, December 1 through Thursday, December 7, 2017
December 1, 2017
The Week Ahead marks the start of the longest month in living memory for the under 7 set and the shortest ever for the adult makers of holiday magic. Things start off quietly enough with an appraisal day and vintage card exhibit spanning over a century at the MV Museum. In West Tisbury, The Winter Farmer’s Market is bustling with shoppers focused on feasting, pantry-stocking and gift giving. Additionally the weekly market and meeting place has added events to its many attractions – this week welcoming a dance improv performance from The Yard. Holiday momentum builds as the week wears on and by Thursday the holidays take pride of place in Edgartown with the annual Christmas in Edgartown filling the weekend, like a Santa sack of events for all ages. We suggest you check out the offerings now so as not to miss any of the fun! Enjoy the Week Ahead!
