The Mattapoisett Lions Club is well known around the South Coast for its annual week-long Harbor Days fundraising event. A host of activities are planned throughout the week of July 13-20. The main event, however, takes place on July 19-20 when over one hundred Crafters and Artisans set up in Shipyard Park (rain or shine) to showcase and sell their creations. In addition, the 2013 Red Sox World Series Trophy will be on display Saturday afternoon.
The Lions Food Tent is a big part of Harbor Days. The weekend kicks off with a Fish & Chips dinner on Friday, July 18 at 5:30 pm (burgers and dogs also available). A free concert under the tent begins at 7:00 pm. Live entertainment is planned for the entire weekend at the Gazebo in Shipyard Park.
The Red Sox 2013 World Series Trophy will be on display at the Gazebo between 1:30 – 3:00 pm. The annual Lobster Dinner is Saturday evening, July 20, from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. A free movie, On Golden Pond, will be shown after dinner at 8:30 pm with a talk by special guest and Oscar winning author Ernest Thompson. Have your picture taken with the Oscar!
A Pancakes Breakfast will be served on Sunday morning, July 21 from 8:00 – 11:00 am. Luncheon foods will be available under the tent both Saturday and Sunday.
A U pick ‘Em Auction offers a wide variety of items from Harbor Days vendors. Participants buy chances and choose the prizes they hope to win.
