Somewhere under a mess of candy wrappers is my kitchen counter. There’s a stream of glitter, feathers, and impractical shoes leading to the front door. Which all means it is the day after Halloween. We are still recovering here and wondering how is it possibly November?! Another great party gone and another to start planning for. If you missed Halloween 2017 in Provincetown, fear not! You can get a fantastic taste of it courtesy of Droning Provincetown. Every year, they do a fab music video mash-up of Ptown folks doing what they do best. If you don’t smile while watching this year’s video, I’m not sure we can be friends.
So, like any good party town, we are on to the next thing: holiday planning! Yes, winter is the off-season but that doesn’t mean Provincetown shuts down on Thanksgiving and Christmas. To be honest, it is quite lovely. It is rarely that cold (nothing that a cozy fire in one of our guestrooms can’t handle). No massive, soul-crushing crowds. Parking! Plenty of food to be eaten, drinks to be sipped, and shopping to be done. It’s a great place to do your holiday shopping, as the off-season sales are fantastic! An added bonus!
If you’re looking to book an off-season getaway before the year’s out, here are some fall/winter dates that are worth a visit:
Thanksgiving (November 22-26)
Plenty of good, old fashioned, Ptown traditions to take part in like the Lighting of Pilgrim Monument, the annual Pilgrim 5k Trot to benefit PAAM, Arts & Crafts Fairs, and the Lighting of the Lobster Pot Tbrasree.
Holly Folly Weekend (Dec 1-3)
A weekend full of festivals, parties, shopping and cultural events to kick start the Christmas season.
Christmas (Dec 23-25)
Make merry and celebrate with us!
New Years (Dec 28-Jan 1)
One of Ptown’s best parties of the year, New Year’s Eve is not to be missed. We know how to beat Cape Cod’s chilly weather!
