February may be the shortest month of the year, but Cape Cod is not short of fun things to do and see in the month that brings us Valentine‘s Day, President‘s Day, and Ground Hog Day. Once Punxsutawney Phil predicts if an early spring is in the offing this year or not we can turn our attention to more important things like music, love, chocolate, and boats.
On February 7-9, the 8th annual Boatbuilders Show returns to Cape Cod via the Resort and Conference Center in Hyannis. Billed as “the best little boat show in the Northeast” it’s the perfect opportunity to start dreaming about warmer weather and, to quote the Wind in the Willows, “believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolutely nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” On tap will be an array of custom and limited-production sail and power boats, both small and large, fashioned in wood and fiberglass.
If boating is not your thing, then consider attending the Osterville Chocolate Fest held this year on Saturday, February 8th. Everything from steaming cups of hot chocolate to decadent chocolate desserts and candies will be front and center in the shops and business of the lovely village of Osterville. Festivities begin at 9:00 AM and continue throughout the day.
On February 14-16, the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra presents “Piano Men,” a multimedia rock-musical-tribute to Billy Joel and Elton John. Featuring hits from the 70s including “Rocket Man”, “My Life”, “Only the Good Die Young”, and “Crocodile Rock”, guest artist Jim Witter and his band will join the orchestra for what proves to be a rollicking good time. Tickets are selling fast for this one, so book early and come “Just the Way You Are”.
