The Week Ahead: Friday, March 16 through Wednesday, March 21, 2018
March 16, 2018
Following a week of wild weather the Vineyard rights its sails as it approaches the Week Ahead. The MV Film Festival continues to draw folks to their amazing line up of films for all ages on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. In spite of the snow covered landscape, Edgartown celebrates the green on St Patrick’s Day with ‘the Island’s shortest parade’ (appropriately taking place on Kelley Street), the Newes’ annual limerick contest and traditional foods, music and celebrations at pubs throughout the Island. Or, gardeners whose fingers are itching to start growing things can come shake the remaining snow and ice off the fruit trees at Polly Hill Arboretum to learn all about pruning in anticipation of warmer days to come (please!!!). Round out the week with a collection of presentations, poetry readings and Bands, Brews & BBQ midweek at Offshore Ale and enjoy the Week Ahead!
