June 10th 4th Annual Strawberry Festival hosted by The Bridge Cape Ann @Mile Marker One 75 Essex Avenue near the Boulevard 11-4pm
Both Donna and Joey already posted some fantastic photos from this weekend’s Fall Festival at Mile Marker One, but it was such a great event, that more can’t hurt. Mile Marker One, Marshall’s Farm Stand, and The Bridge pulled off a fantastic afternoon despite some threatening weather.
The city of Gloucester provided some pretty awesome vehicles including Fire Engine 3, a police Hummer, an ATV, and even a Coast Guard Vessel. That’s pretty much all my boys needed to make a day of it, but the pony rides, face painting, bouncy houses, awesome vendors, pretty yummy Bloody Marys, gelato, the Sam Adams Brewery Oktoberfest Beer Hoisting Competition (what?), and some pretty sweet alpacas made it all that much more fun. And…that was by no means all that the event had to offer.
A true collaboration of forces to pull off yet another fantastic family event here in our great city. Thanks to all! Put this one on your calendar for next year for sure.
One of the most viewed photos of the horribles parade on my photostream was this one:
These fellows are on the float for a new website, The Bridge. They host videos, a short-format news feed, a blog, and more, from/about local Cape Ann businesses and organizations. It’s a helpful and well-presented resource that complements GoodMorningGloucester and helps spread the news about all the great things going on here on Cape Ann!
