If you're like me, you rush to the Cape all you can in the off season when you can really enjoy its serenity and slow pace. The islands are no different, and with Nantucket's Daffodil Festival this weekend, it is the perfect time to escape before the rush!
Like everyone in New England who finds ways to celebrate the thawing of winter and absence of white, Nantucket drums up a full scale celebration this weekend, April 25-27, the same time its daffodils come in bloom. There is an annual antique car parade featuring over 100 daffodil-strewn cars, a tailgate picnic in the village of Siasconset, a children's parade, and daffy hat pageant. Yes, it's simple fun, but perfect for a family or those who want some time away from Playstation or the ball fields. It's a free event, so plan your Daffodil visit today and take advantage of some off season overnight packages as well. Call 508-228-1700 for more information.
