Holly Folly

December 6th-8th 2013

November 18th, 2013

Early December in Provincetown is a magical time. Both the Monument and the traditional Lobster Trap Tree are glowing with colorful holiday lights, you catch a whiff of wood smoke as you traverse the side streets, and the air is filled with the anticipation of celebrations shared with friends and extended family. It's also a time for festive activities and great Christmas shopping!

The tree and all the decorations will be donated to the Foley House in support of the AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod.

Start your weekend Friday with the Holly Folly Shop Hop 11 am-5 pm shop the unique shops and fabulous art galleries to find that perfect gift for someone on your list.
