2013 Orleans' "Celebrate Our Waters" Weekend - Sept 13-15

The forth annual “Celebrate Our Waters” weekend, will be held September 13th, 14th and 15th, 2013, with many new events, encore presentations of some of your favorites. All events are free!

The weekend’s purpose is to showcase the area’s precious bays, ponds, lakes, marshes, creeks and beaches and thereby increase general awareness and appreciation of our valuable water resources. The event was originally conceived of as simply a few guided walks highlighting Orleans’ ponds and saltwater estuaries but it quickly mushroomed into a two day (and now three day) festival including walks, bike rides, talks, tours, kayak trips, cat boat sailing, aquaculture events, a sand sculpture contest and a bonfire on Nauset Beach. For 2013, they added Friday to the weekend festivities and continue with last years' popular geographical expansion with events in Brewster and Eastham.

This is a weekend to celebrate what brought many of us here in the first place – the wonderful waters all around us.

Go to their website for a schedule and map of events!  All events are free! (Did I say that before!)
