Come with us to this Unique and Wonderful Annual Event on the Island of Nantucket. 

In the morning, we will hop on the Fast Ferry out of Hyannis to get to the Island before the festivities begin. 

Festivities will include a Daffy Antique Car Parade, a Daffy dog competition, and a Daffy Hat Competition. There will also be a children's parade where the kids and their bikes, scooters, and carrigages are all decked out in daffodil decorations.

After the festivites are over, we will hire a van to take us around the island to visit all the major sites, including the old Wind Mill and Sankaty Head Lighthouse.

Visit Parker River National Wildlife Refuge on Plum Island in Newburyport. Established in 1942 the refuge provides feeding, resting, and nesting habitats. Located along the Atlantic Flyway, the refuge is of vital stopover significance to waterfowl, shorebirds and songbirds during migratory periods.  We will look for resident and migratory birds in the salt pannes along the road and from the observation trails and blinds.

Following Parker River, visit the numerous art galleries and specialty shops along State, Pleasant, and Water streets in Newburyport, offering everything from T-shirts and jewelry to books.  The Tannery Marketplace is home to more shops. Or, visit the Custom House Maritime Museaum.  The museum houses a lively collection of displays and artifacts from Newburyport's shipbuilding, trade and privateering days.
