Falmouth Village Blooming
Join us in welcoming spring back to Falmouth Village! For the first week in May, Falmouth Village blooms with May baskets, May poles, plant sales and an unbelievable kids day! Of course, there will also be plenty of blooming bargains at retail stores. Add to that a Cinco de Mayo celebration in the streets, Flower Power specials at local restaurants and you have one Cape Cod village that ushers in spring with gusto. Look at all that’s in store for the first week in May as Falmouth Village brings out the blooms!
Falmouth Village Blooming kicks off with a day dedicated to the little buds of Falmouth and beyond with our best ever – Kid’s Day! On April 30th, bring your tots to Falmouth Museums on the Green for a day dedicated to fun! We’ll have Mother’s Day crafts provided by Falmouth Art Center, story time and a book nook provided by Eight Cousins, face painting, a bubble artist, outdoor games, and a sweet treat thanks to the folks at Pies A La Mode. And the best part about kid’s day? It’s free! So come on down Saturday, April 30th and help us welcome spring and Falmouth Village Blooming! All that we ask is you RSVP and let us know how many buds are in your bouquet so we can plan accordingly! Register here.
Soon enough, Main Street and Queens Buyway will be peppered with beautiful flower baskets, and we couldn’t be more excited! Beginning April 30th, Falmouth Village Association members will display hanging flower baskets outside their business. We invite you to stroll around the village and take a look at all the baskets so you can cast your vote for the winning basket! Last year, The Pink Polka Dot claimed most original (people’s choice) and Palmer House Inn walked away with the blue ribbon for most traditional. The creativity of these baskets is amazing – it’s worth the walk to see them all! The winning baskets will be announced on May 9th!
