As these Cape Cod summer days begin to wane, we’re looking ahead to fall… and boy, there is all sorts of fun, exciting things to do on Cape Cod in the fall! One of our favorite Cape Cod fall festivals is the Yarmouth Seaside Festival.
Now in its 35th year, the Seaside Festival kicks into high gear on Columbus Day weekend (October 12-14, 2013), offering everything from crafts to canoe races and pumpkin carving.
Festival Fun in Yarmouth
Every year, a dedicated group of volunteers goes out of its way to prep, plan, and implement all of the Seaside Festival festivities. And there’s nothing short of good old fashion fun!
The festival was founded in 1978 by South Yarmouth resident Jan Butler who wanted to create community spirit and pride in the Town of Yarmouth. Since then, the festival has grown into a gala event which boasts a magnificant craft fair of more than 125 crafters from around the country. There’s also a giant parade, live musical entertainment, and a ton of children’s activities and games.
There’s even something for competitors, both in sport and food.
You won’t want to miss the kayak and canoe race, the 5K road race, the greased pole contest and, yep, even a pie-eating contest.
Don’t forget to stay late for the fireworks display!
Cape Cod Fall Vacations
The Yarmouth Seaside Festival is the pride and joy of Cape Cod – bringing together townspeople and tourists alike. It’s an ideal destination for all sorts of Cape Cod Fall Vacations – for families, or couples!
And, not only is it a fun-loving, warm atmosphere – it’s also FREE!
