The very special Bioluminescence Parade begins at the Wing School at 6:00 pm and will proceed down Main Street. There will be numerous musical and dance performances at various locations throughout the village. All of the festivities lead up to the "Grand Countdown" that will be held by the Dexter Grist Mill on Shawme Pond. The countdown features one of the fabulous Michael Magyar "Giants" which will be lighted at 9:00 pm to celebrate the beginning of 2014.
Sandwich’s 375 Anniversary. Although the village was founded in 1637, it was not incorporated until 1639. From January through December, 2014, special celebratory events will be going on almost every month to commemorate the founding of the oldest town on Cape Cod.
Here at the Inn the tree will still be up and we are welcoming guests. See our packages that include Buttons to First Night to help you celebrate the arrival of the New Year.
