Waterfront Festival, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA
The Plymouth Waterfront Festival was held on a beautiful summer day. The event featured more than 250 vendors of things, services, and food.
It is always nice when Water Street is closed to traffic and pedestrians have free reign over the space.
Italian ice was popular in the heat. In the background is the portico that shelters the Plymouth Rock.
I'm not sure why an inflatable slide with a deadly looking alligator/crocodile motif is appealing to the kids but, they were paying to slide down.
I am standing atop Cole's Hill for this photo. Plymouth Rock at far left, the harbor in the distance, and Plymouth Rock State Park in the mid-distance. Cole's Hill was the original burial site for the Pilgrims during the first winter 1620-21.
Hundreds of yellow rubber duckies float down the town brook to determine a raffle winner.
Scooping out the duckies.
View of the harbor from the Plymouth Yacht Club.
Here is one of the dozens of five foot tall lobsters placed around town as part of an art installation, "Lobster Crawl." Each sculpture is designed and painted by local artists and then sponsored by local businesses. This one was located at Town Hall.
