All About Cape

Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16th, and the National Retail Federation estimates that more than 15 billion dollars will be spent on the holiday. And for a lot of us, Dad’s are hard to shop for.  But don’t settle for a necktie just yet. Cape offers plenty of opportunities for Father’s Day gifts for him to enjoy.

The time machine’s first stop is at 19th-century Bollinger Mill’s Summer Fun Day on Saturday, June 1. This four-floor gristmill will come back to life from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. with self-guided tours, corn hole, lawn bowling, croquet and more. While you’re there, be sure to stroll across the covered bridge. It’s one of only four remaining in the state.

Summer events and activities are kicking into high gear. And that means one of Cape’s favorite traditions is back: Tunes at Twilight in Ivers Square.  On May 17 at 7 pm a blend of soulful, R&B and pop sounds by guitarist Paul Childers feels the air. But it will also be filled with some high flying pilots. The Blue Angels.
