Spring is definitely in the air and we are all starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel!
We will be kicking off the 2021 season with a reimagined version of our annual Patriot's Day Celebration. Much like we reimagined Fall for Ogunquit/OgunquitFest in 2020, we are extending the celebration into a longer two week celebration to allow for more flexibilty and opportunity to visit our Beautiful Place by the Sea this spring.
Our "Splash into Spring"celebration will feature events from April 16th-May 2nd.
Although we have had to cancel our signature craft fair at the beach, we have reinvented some of the other traditional Patriot's Day events and created some new ones.
Here is just a sampling of some of the events we have planned:
Annual Patriotic Pooch Pageant Fife & Drum Concert and Junior Corp Scavenger Hunt Caricature Artist Kite Making Craft for Kids Sand Drawing Demos on the Beach Human Statues Side Walk Sales
