Blog by Lauren LaScalia (sous-chef at Captain’s Manor Inn)

It’s that time again, your Barnstable County Fair on Cape Cod has come to town!

Every July at the Cape Cod Fair grounds vendors of all sorts pile onto the grounds ready to set up shop for the week. The Barnstable county fair is always fun for all ages. With plenty of rides, games, music, and even a demolition derby, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

The Demolition Derby


Being a newbie to the county fair scene, I could not wait to go on Derby night to watch all the car commotion. Personally, I couldn’t believe this type of activity was even safety approved, but it sure was fun to watch ! All different types of beat up cars with special numbers on them were in a serious fight and the crowd was loving it. We skipped out early from the derby to avoid the crowds and made our way to some rides.



Rides for the Adventurous


A swinging good time.

I cannot lie and say I am a huge fan of amusement rides, however I will support the people I am at the fair with and watch them have fun ! We walked

around to all the different types and ended on one I will gladly participate in, the Ferris Wheel. We hopped into our four seater and up we went. It was amazing to check out the fair scene from that high. You can really get a good picture of how big of an event this really is from the top of the Ferris Wheel. After everyone had their ride fun it was time for my favorite part, the classic fair food !


 Classic County Fair Food

With so many options for food, I was overwhelmed. Did I want a blooming onion, corn dog, cotton candy? I had heard a lot about and was told I must try a very special food vendor called “Steak on a Stick. We circled the Fair grounds twice looking for it, but with no luck! They must have taken the year off. We ultimately settled on a blooming onion and a corn dog from the neighboring stand. It was just as delicious as I imagined. I realized while I was eating, the main reason I wanted to come to the fair was for the food.

Falling right in the middle of summertime, the Barnstable County Fair is always great fun for you to enjoy with friends or family. You need to know that although the Fair might cause traffic around the area, it is definitely worth the adventure. For the kids there are plenty of age appropriate activities. Some of the children friendly activities are a petting zoo, horseback riding, and fair games. Not to worry..for adults there is the Demolition Derby, live music. Take note that for the first time ever this year they will be selling beer. You can enjoy the fair over the weekend from 12 pm – 10 pm and 12pm- 9pm on Sunday, don’t miss out on this classic Cape Cod event ! You can see a schedule of events at the fair here. Also below are some pictures from our time at the fair.

The Annual Cape Cod Auto Show at Heritage Museum and Gardens will be held on June 11, 2016 from 9 am until 2 pm. Over 100 cars are expected to be showcased at the event.

The cars are of a wide variety to appeal to all and include hot rods, antique cars, classic autos and even custom cars. Many of the cars at this annual event have historically been in pristine condition but there are also those under restoration that are fun to look at. This year there will be a special exhibit area that will showcase cars that were made in Massachusetts and two cars will also be celebrated this year upon reaching milestones. They are the Toronado and the Continental MKII that are celebrating 50 and 60 years respectively.

A parade of cars will take place at 2 pm but prior to that you can stroll to your hearts content staring at 9 am to view the cars that will be staged at Heritage’s Parade Field.

Falmouth Village Blooming

March 13, 2016 by Trish Robinson

Falmouth Village Blooming is an experience you don’t want to miss! From April 30th-May 9th, Falmouth Village welcomes warmer weather with spring time activities galore! After a long, cold winter, the town of Falmouth is more than excited to shift gears and start preparing for all of the wonderful things that come with spring. Village businesses band together to congratulate everyone on making it through another winter with events, restaurant specials, and retail discounts.

An example of a Flower Power Special would be Cupcake Charlies offering a free cupcake with every 3 purchase and a Blooming Bargain example is 20% off jewelry at the Celebrations store during Falmouth Village Blooming.

Saturday, April 30th will kick off Falmouth Village Blooming and village shops will display their “May Baskets” on the sidewalk in front of their store. We’ve had some exceptionally creative displays in the past. Here are a few that stood out to us:

Like this one from Bear in Boots Gastropub, a restaurant specializing in homemade comfort food from around the world. Their basket contained delicious herbs and wine corks, two of the things that make a night at Bear and Boots deliciously memorable:bb


Here’s the submission from Pink Polka Dot, winner of most original basket. It’s no surprise that Jen incorporated beautiful paper flowers as this shop offers a large selection of artisan greeting cards, distinctive paper goods and unique gifts.



There was no way we were missing out on the fun! Our basket included two harbingers of spring perched atop greenery and fresh flowers. We loved watching passerby stop to take a photo with our display.


The most fun part about the May baskets? You get to decide the winner! Vote by liking, sharing, or commenting on the photo of the basket that you think is the best, and on May 8th, all of the votes will be tallied and the winner will be announced May 9th. Strolling around the village looking at all of the beautiful baskets is one of our favorite parts of the spring here in Falmouth!

Highfield Hall and Gardens celebrates its welcome back weekend with an open house full of amazing events. Take a tour of the Ice House, built next to the kitchen garden where the Beebe family used to store their food, and serve chilled drinks and ice cream. What an appropriate tour to take to hhwelcome the warm weather! Tour the outdoor estate and learn about the property as well as the history – the team and Highfield will transport you back in time with their recount of what life was like during the 1870’s when the property was commissioned to be built. Robert Wyatt will play his favorite songs of spring after the artists reception which will feature ‘The Language of Flowers’ by Heather Blume. What May Day festivities would be complete without a May pole celebration? Not this one! Take part in the tradition of dancing around the May pole to usher in the new season. This year, for the first time ever, the groundskeeping crew at Highfield will get a little help – from goats! The adorable farm animals will munch on invasive plants and poison ivy, providing a natural, symbiotic solution to unwelcome plant life! Goatscaping will take place all day on May 1st.

ajIn the mood for a margarita? Anjo’s Mexican Bistro livens up Main Street every Cinco de Mayo with an unforgettable fiesta outdoors. They close down the street next to the restaurant to accommodate live music, an outdoor bar, and of course – delicious food! In addition to $5 margaritas, Mexican style beers and burritos, the crew at Anejo’s will be offering prizes and giveaways all day long. This is one of Falmouth’s favorite festivities, and you’re officially invited!

Every year during Falmouth Village Blooming, the Falmouth beautification council hosts its annual plant sale on the green. This is a great opportunity to get supplies for window baskets, outdoor gardens and indoor arrangements. Take a bit of spring home with you as a souvenir!

From April 30th-May 9th you can enjoy bloomin’ bargains at local retail shops and flower power specials inspired by the spring at village restaurants. The best part about the celebration? It’s all taking place steps away from your room at The Captain’s Manor Inn. Once you arrive, you can leave your car keys in your room for the duration of your stay. All of the participating restaurants and shops are right down the street. We’d love for you to enjoy this year’s Falmouth Village Blooming at The Captain’s Manor Inn.

The Woods Hole Film Festival

July 16, 2015 by Trish Robinson

firestation_pic1The Woods Hole Film Festival is the oldest film festival on Cape Cod and the Islands and is celebrating its 24th year this summer. Independent and emerging filmmakers will come together and premier over 100 films and 8 short programs. Programs include workshops, master classes, panel discussions and parties complete with live music. Spotlighting the history and beauty of this region is a goal of the Woods Hole Film Festival and those films that feature or have a connection to the Cape or the surrounding New England geography will be especially highlighted. Another way the festival honors the beauty of the area is through their venue choices. From the Old Woods Hole Fire Station, to iconic restaurants and landmarks, you’ll watch these films and attend accompanying events in some of the most loved buildings in town. This year, in addition to the Woods Hole locations, Falmouth Academy as well as Falmouth Cinema Pub will also be featuring films.

Opening night will feature Maya Forbes‘ (Cambridge, MA native) directorial debut “Infinitely Polar Bear” which features Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. Other highlights are expected to be Richard Ray Perez‘ film “Cesar’s Last Fast,” a documentary chronicling Cesar Chavez’ struggle to secure humane and fair treatment for America’s farmers; and Sally Taylor‘s, (daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon) presentation of her documentary. Preparation for Taylor’s documentary “Consenses” began when she asked 150 artists over the span of two years to interpret each other’s work and share their reactions. The documentary reveals those reactions and evolves into a greater conversation about human reaction and the understanding of art as it pertains to the individual.

There will be multiple events each day, and tickets are available online through Woods Hole Film Fesitval’s website. This is a highly anticipated and extremely well attended event each year and 2015 promises to deliver!
