Things To Do- Rockport Harvest Festival October 17-18

From FOB Cindy Rich-

Hello Joey,

It’s been a while! How the Hell are you?  I’ve got my hands in another project, this time in Rockport.  I was wondering if you could “blast” this Poster and Link from your site to let your readers know about the Harvest Festival going on in October.

This was sent to me from a dear friend Sue Andersen.  Sue is joined by Sarah Kelly, both of whom are from Rockport, and have spearheaded this wonderful fall event.

I am including the colorful poster and the link to this event.  As always, you and your “blog” Rock!  Thanks Joey!  Cindy Rich

After several good answers to this week’s location, Ellen MacDonald was the first person to identify the stone structue as St. Anthony’s Chapel in East Gloucester. Mary Ann also got the correct location shortly after Ellen.

Congratulations, Ellen! The tickets to King Richard’s Faire are yours! Pick Up The Tix at Captain Joe’s

A big thank you to Joke Shop USA for the donation of this week’s prize!

Joke Shop USA Gloucester Halloween Headquarters

Just last week when hopping downtown to grab my coffee, Larry from Joke Shop USA told me I just had to check out the back room set-up.  I didn’t have time as I had to get back to the dock but promised to return asap to see what was up.

The place is jam packed with every single thing you might ever need for Halloween.  Every square inch is stuffed with Halloween inventory.  There is no need to head up the line to the mall, just go straight downtown and grab a costume, a custom mask, or some gag Halloween gifts for the host of the Halloween party you’ll no doubt attend.  This pic is just the back room where they have the “adult” stuff.  What “adult” stuff you ask?  Well you’ll just have to go down to check it out for yourself.
