10699345_10152458469108533_1751446444_nHow long have you lived/worked in Ptown?

I grew up on the cape and moved to Provincetown 12 years ago.

If you had to pick, what is one thing that keeps you coming back?

The views of the ocean and the beautiful sunsets. Describe your perfect Saturday in Ptown from morning until bedtime. Make a mimosa and lay out on my back deck soaking up the sun, followed by a light lunch, cocktails at the White Wind Inn, Boatslip for T and then a dinner party in with friends.

What’s your favorite place to shop in town?

Can you really pick just one, there are so many shops that sell so many great things, but jewelry always gets me excited.

What’s your favorite place to eat in town?

Victors Restaurant, the atmosphere is fantastic, the food is great and they make an amazing spicy watermelon margarita.

Where can someone see you on a daily basis in town?

In my office behind the Purple Feather planning Provincetown’s next Carnival.

Carnival 2014

We had an amazing time this year at Carnival in Provincetown! There were thousands of superheroes that hit the town and cast their super powers over exciting Ptown. The Cape Colony Inn had a presence in the parade along with local and national celebrities like Bruce Vilanch, Miss Richfield 1981, and Caroline Rhea.

Take a look at our video of photos that shows a lot of the fun and laughs from the day! Stay tuned for more information about next year’s Carnival events.

Swim For Life 2014

This past weekend, Provincetown opened its doors (well, waters) to people from all over for the Annual Swim For Life & Paddler Flotilla. On September 6, 2014, contestants met at Boatslip to swim 1.4 miles across the Harbor. Hundreds of swimmers, friends, and paddlers come each year to take part in this event. The fundraiser supports year-round services for AIDS, women’s health, and the community.

We will be providing details on next year’s event once they become available but take a look at some pics from this year!
