November in Provincetown

Provincetown is still bustling with activity even in the colder weather. Thanksgiving brings two big annual events: The lighting of the Pilgrim Monument on Wed, 11/21, and the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree on Sat, 11/24. And November 30th begins Holly Folly Weekend, which runs through Sunday, December 2nd.

The dunes are beautiful this time of year too. We recently went for a walk from Province Lands Rd to Race Point. We’ll be sharing photos shortly!
