Never is it on display in a more fun, inviting and entertaining way than during the towns annual Heritage Days, held this year on Aug. 5-7. While the event, in its 48th season, has long been known for its amazing artist, vendor and sidewalk sale, which winds all the way down Front Street in the harbor, and its huge draw of musical guests, this years program has a goal of ramping up the celebration of the town itself. read what he saidAccording to Scituate Chamber of Commerce President Linda Ferguson, Our goal is to bring back the heritage in Heritage Days. That means that in addition to all that makes the event super fun the music and other entertainment, the food, the crafting and more the weekend will feature displays, open houses at historic sites and even food that beckons back to the early days of the coastal town. Most of the historic sites are open for free during Heritage Days each year, but this year they all are, and the chamber is providing free shuttle service to all of them all day long. You can tour Scituate Lighthouse and learn all about the Army of Two that was Rebecca and Abigail Bates. You can climb Lawson tower and imagine what it was like when financial guru Thomas Lawson owned just about everything as far as the eye can see. why not check hereYou can visit a museum that teaches you all about sea mossing (a vocation that kids used to make extra money as recently as two decades ago). This year, in partnership with the towns Historical Society, its even more fun. Pick up a passport in the harbor (drawn by famed cartoonist Matt Brown, who loves Scituate), and get it stamped at each historic site. Once your passport is full (and you have all year to fill it, beckoning you back to town if you dont get them all during Heritage Days), you can trade it in for fun Scituate-themed prizes.
