Each year on the third Saturday in June, Falmouth’s Saint Barnabas church has its annual Strawberry Festival. The 2012 Strawberry Festival was held on June 23 and ran from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

There were games,  face painting and cotton candy for the little ones. Also there was a “Flea Market” for those who are looking for a bargain and huge bowls of Falmouth grown strawberries and real whipped cream. There are hot dogs on the grill and of course lobster rolls. Folks come from all over the Cape to see this charming New England town celebrate the beginning of summer.

Get in the holiday spirit with a visit to Cape Cod this year! The Falmouth “Holidays by the Sea” weekend is right around the corner (November 30 – December 2, 2012) so book your getaway today at one of Falmouth’s wonderful B&B’s!

What a great time to be on Cape Cod.  Wander the quaint boutiques and shops of Falmouth and find the very best in original gift ideas.  Take a tour of a real lighthouse, Nobska Light, one of the most famous in New England.  See the lights come on for the decorations on the Falmouth Green, and watch Santa arrive by boat to our harbor.
