Sweet September

There seems to be a lot of “summer’s over” talk circulating this week and we would like to eighty-six that myth. For locals, the sweetest part of summer starts now! Reclaim the roads, belly up to an empty stretch of beach … September is our time to enjoy Cape Cod. And, of course, plan to join us on Sunday, September 27 at Aselton Park in Hyannis for the last LoveLocal Fest of the summer! Free, family friendly fun, food, music and local shopping from 11am until dusk.
