The upcoming weekend, December 4-6, is a big one for Christmas events on Cape Cod. And since I am a sucker for holiday traditions, I’m going to have a hard time choosing from among the many unique and wonderfully original activities going on. Here are just a few that piqued my interest:
Holly Days, a month-long celebration of open houses, tree lightings, and concerts that takes place in Sandwich.
12th Annual Festival of Trees, presented by the Chatham Garden Club on December 4th from 1 to 4 PM.
Holly Folly Weekend in Provincetown, which includes a Snow Ball, tree lighting, sing-a-long, farmer’s market, and holiday stroll.
Brewster Sea of Lights, a prelude to the holiday with music, food raffles, band concert, and more.
Eighth Annual Enchanted Village opens at the Cape Codder in Hyannis, featuring over 100,000 lights, Santa’s village, and a bonfire every night, weather permitting.
At the Country Christmas at Green Briar Jam Kitchen in Sandwich visitors can sample fresh fruit jams and mulled cider while enjoying the old fashioned decorations.
The Jolly Jaunt takes place on December 6th at the Hyannis resort and Conference Center. Folks dressed up in holiday costumes will compete in a 5K run and one-mile fun walk to benefit the Special Olympics. This truly is a one-of-a-kind event.
I’ll be putting together a list of my favorite Cape Cod shops and boutiques that always get me in the spirit. Look for it here in just a few days.
