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.
