Yarmouth Summer Celebration 2013

Yarmouth Summer Celebration 2013

The Yarmouth Summer Celebration is Back!  2013 promises to be just as great as last year.  The event has extended to nine days this year from June 21st-June 29th leading up to the July 4th holiday week.

One of the main attractions for the celebration is the commission of 36 sand sculptures around Yarmouth.  The sculptures are created by professional sand sculptor Greg Grady of Hampton Beach, NH and have vastly different designs.  You can find additional details about the sculptures and their locations on the Yarmouth Summer Celebration website at http://yarmouthsummercelebration.com/events/sand-sculpture-map/

Other free events lined up for the week include a fishing derby with a team led by Riverview Bait and Tackle, Kite flying with Archie Stewart & Friends, Salsa by the Sea and Nature Walks with Naturalist Connie Boyce.

You can also take in not one but two Y-D Red Sox Games at D-Y High Field. The Y-D Red Sox are again the non-profit sponsor host of the Yarmouth Summer Celebration Kick-Off with funding provided by the Town of Yarmouth’s Tourism Fund and proceeds going to the Y-D Red Sox.

On Wednesday people can participate in a fun run on the beach called the Sandy Feet 3 Miler with Bayside Runner.  After the run, cool down with the always popular Ice Cream Social.  For $5 people can sample 5 scoops of ice cream from the Cape’s best ice cream shops.  It’s a win-win event, get your exercise on and then be rewarded for your efforts!

The celebration caps off on Saturday night with a Y-D Red Sox game and a family movie night with the cartoons on the big screen at D-Y High Field followed by a fireworks display set to music.

All in all it’s a fantastic time to visit Yarmouth.  Many of the lodging establishments and restaurants have specials and the weather is fabulous.  It’s quintessential Cape Cod fun for the whole family and we hope to see you there!  We can’t forget to say a BIG thank you to our presenting sponsor the Cape Cod Irish Village who has been so generous in support of this event.
