Doug, the Quahog, Predicts Long Summer!

In case you missed it, “Doug,” Cape Cod’s official quahog, showed up to make his annual quahog prognostication for the third consecutive year. His optimistic prediction on this first official day of summer of 2011? A bountiful and specific 12 weeks and one day of sunny beach weather lie ahead! Yeah!

This somewhat tongue-in-cheek event was created by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce as a way to promote tourism and to kick off the summer in a fun way. The ceremony was held at Aselton Park in Hyannis. It, of course, was followed by a bit of frivolity and drink (including Cape Cod Beer). Photos and a video will be forthcoming on the Quahog Day website...Here.
