Eastham’s annual Windmill Weekend was this weekend–September 9 through the 11th. This annual weekend is a real hometown event–a celebration of community, a goodbye to summer and a hello to fall.
All weekend, the town’s historic windmill was surrounded by residents and visitors enjoying fiddling, raffles, hot dogs, kids’ games and fried dough. The highlight of the weekend is the annual parade, which stepped off a 1 p.m. on Sunday. Folks of all ages and lots of families with kids gathered to cheer on the parade participants including students from the elementary, middle and high school, local organizations and clubs, police and firefighters, park rangers and Coast Guard Auxiliary.
There were flutists on unicycles, boy scouts in full dress, a man in a JFK mask, Smokey the Bear and an overly enthusiastic Zumba instructor. And what parade is complete without fire trucks, flashing lights, musket firing militia men, bagpipes and the Good Time Guys.
