Along with the musical performances throughout the day there will be hands-on craft demonstrations from exhibitors and local arts organizations, The Common Cod Fiber Guild, The Stitch House, and Creative Union. Adding to the fanfare, Lucie Wicker Photography will be in the Square with her interactive photo booth snapping fanciful portraits throughout the afternoon.
