Say What? Fire, Ice & Music in Downtown Rockport!

People assume that the off-season in Rockport means that the town is entirely shut down when, in reality, winter in Rockport provides great opportunities to enjoy downtown when it is at its most beautiful with snow cover and ice — all of it reflecting the thin winter light. Plus you can easily find parking, which is never a bad thing.

Local residents and artists Rick Ehrstin and Rob Trumbour have collaborated with composer Andy Tierstien to create Wharf Music: a public art installation bringing together light and music. The installation will take place in the heart of Rockport on Bradley Wharf over four evenings: February 14th, 15th, 21st and 22nd from 6:30 to 8:00pm.

Come get warm by the fire, listen to the music as it washes across the water, check out the installation on the wharf and feel a moment of gratitude that you live in a place where cool stuff like this happens.
