M1D is just five days away. Some of you might be tempted to look at the weather report and think a little rain will dampen the fun. If you’re one of those people, take your weather app off your phone RIGHT now, because the rain never stops Motif No.1 Day. In fact, there’s no point in bothering to look up the weather, because the show will go on and we will celebrate the Motif no matter what. Also, the weather changes from minute-to-minute on Cape Ann so there’s that.
Most likely Saturday will turn out to be a balmy day with an average 70-degree temperature and a lovely breeze blowing off the Old Harbor. Either way, rain or shine, can’t stop won’t stop as the song says. We are ready to have a festival.
Our social media guru, also known as Melanie Waddell, has put together a series of posts that break down the fest by categories: Art, Music, Culture, Food – the intersection of awesome. We’re going to share them here, for those of you who don’t have Instagram but still read blog posts like this one, the old-fashioned way.
