The Week Ahead: Friday, April 27 through Thursday, May 3, 2018
April 27, 2018
The week ahead brings with it the end of April and the first days of May. That the new season is almost here has been pretty obvious over the past weekends when boats have been filled to capacity and the sidewalks are filled with unfamiliar faces, loads of shopping bags and lots of folks stopping to take photos of all the beautiful scenes to which those who live here have become too accustomed. The weekend especially is full of compelling activities including the weekend-long Spectrum Film Festival, Comedy Night at the Harbor View Hotel, a choice of several outdoor activities at Island farms for both kids and adults, a dance program sponsored by The Yard being offered at the MV Performing Arts Center,some fun and unique pop -up shopping at Featherstone Center for the Arts and more. Check out details for these events and more by clicking here. Spring once it arrives, is a delightful season on Martha’s Vineyard. Come and enjoy it and the Week Ahead!
