Trombones or not, there
be a big parade. The theme for this year's Carnival is Enchanted Forest, and Pandora Peoples is leading the effort to create the WOMR float, "Curiouser and Curiouser," with an Alice In Wonderland theme. With Pandora's exquisitely creative eye, and our very own royalty in Lady Di atop the float, things are shaping up for this to be our most dramatic spectacle ever. There's still room for you to get on board, whether you've got construction materials to donate (newspapers, rope, paint) or if you've got the moxie to be one of the characters (Caterpillar, Mad Hatter, White Rabbit, King of Hearts). Contact
to see how you might fit in among the mushroom forest. The Provincetown Carnival week provides the crescendo of the summer season and the parade goes down the rabbit hole of Commercial Street on Thursday August 22.
Matty Dread will yet again be a person of interest to the Orleans Police Department. Happily, it will not be part of an enforcement action this time. Instead, Matty is providing the soundtrack for the Orleans Block Party on Main Street, Wednesday August 21 from 5:30-9. It's a beautiful slice of Americana with trucks and boats from the first responders on display, classic cars and games for the kids. Come on out and share a smile.
