Driving home several nights ago, I passed Saint Peter’s Square at the moment the Ardelle was passing by and just had to turn around and take a snapshot of this beautiful pinky schooner in the golden late day light. For only one week more, you can purchase at Maritime Gloucester (or online at https://maritimegloucester.org/shop) discounted pre-season passes for the Ardelle.
Who is Matt Harding? He’s the viral-video guy who travels around the world and dances his signature goofy dance with the locals. His endearing and moving dance videos have garnered over 100,000 million views on YouTube. Here are some of his most recent hits:
Now Matt is coming to Gloucester to dance with us! On Friday, May 20th at 6:30p, he will be dancing with us at the Fisherman’s Statue on the Boulevard. If we get a lot of enthusiastic dancers, we might make it into his next video, to be seen by millions!
The Empty Bowl is in full swing! Don’t forget to stop by!

The celebration will include giant floating bubble demonstrations, “make your own bubbles” stations, exploration of the science of bubbles with the Museum of Science Boston, an appearance by The Inventor Mentor (www.inventormentor.org), children’s fitness activities, and entertainment from a DJ, juggler, and magician.
The Boston Bubble Festival is presented by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department with sponsors Uncle Bubble, Massachusetts WIC Nutrition Program, Fisher College, HP Hood LLC, Disney’s “Alice Through The Looking Glass,” Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory,” Columbia Pictures’ “The Angry Birds,” and partners Magic 106.7, WERS-FM, and “Bubble Guy” Jim Dichter.

It is certainly our most important form of communication for notifying the team about events and stuff.
