It was our best Bear Week ever! Highlights included interviewing the charming Representative Brian Sims, visiting with Authors, Blake Little and Armistead Maupin, and eating lobster rolls every day! We hosted three Modern Bear events this year, including two at the Bear Market, and our annual Meet-&-Greet at Joe Coffee.
The best part of these events is meeting so many wonderful facebook friends in person. We also got to tour a 1966 modern beach house, a rarity in the Cape, and see some of our fave performers including Tom Goss and Dina Martina!
Provincetown continues to be one of the most charming tourist destinations on the East coast, and this Bear Week was estimated to draw over 10,000 Bears from all over the world! We can’t wait for next year!
