Events, Activities Heat Up Summer on Cape Ann
Here's an article from the Blue Shutters e-newsletter, spotlighting events and activities coming up this summer around Cape Ann:
This has been the busiest year we can remember for events around Cape Ann -- and some of the best is yet to come.
Our guests raved about the Farmer's Market, the Manchester Arts Festival, St. Peter's Fiesta, the downtown block parties and the July 4th festivities -- and the fun will continue through late August and into September.
The Farmers' Market continues each Thursday afternoon throughout the summer -- at a new location on Rogers Street across from the Topside Restaurant.
The Gloucester Waterfront Festival returns to Stage Fort Park on August 14 and 15.
Cape Ann welcomes a new event on August 22 -- the "Run Gloucester Road Race" -- which will pass through the streets near the Blue Shutters.
On Labor Day weekend, the Schooner Festival sets sail (that's the Blue Shutters' own AnnMarie Comer and Patty Sapienza aboard one of Gloucester's most famous schooners, the Thomas Lannon, in the photo above).
Check out the Cape Ann Vacations website for more details on these and other summer events.
And remember, there's no better way to enjoy these events and activities than to stay at the Blue Shutters. We're just minutes away from all the fun -- and we're here at the end of the day to help you relax and recharge.
Don't wait too long -- there are just a few openings here at the Shutters now through the end of summer.
