Memorial Day weekend always brings lots of visitors, who stream onto Cape Cod, braving heavy traffic, for a first taste of summer.
But this Saturday will feel more like winter with a high temperature of only sixty degrees. Yikes!
There are two events of note this Saturday. Don't miss the yard sale at the Transfer Station, organized by Cape Cool from 8 to 12. The funds raised go toward a scholarship for a local student who is interested in environmental work. Then, at noon, head over to Preservation Hall for a first look at the birdhouses created by Wellfleet artists and non-artists alike. I love this annual event, which raises funds for activities at Preservation Hall. (Above, a "birdhouse" imagined by Paul Suggs, for auction two years in a row.) The live auction will take place this year from five to seven. So, plan to attend both of these events, one organized by Cape Cool and the other by Prez. Hall, two Wellfleet institutions which deserve your support.
