April is all about the running here–
Running noses, running 26.2 miles, and amorous fish running upriver.
Hark the humble herring heroically heralding spring-
Plimoth Grist Mill’s second annual Herring Run Festival kicks off this Friday evening, April 24th. Witness the drama of about 100,000 water-ascending Lotharios looking to get lucky in the private nooks of Billington Sea. There’ll be food, music, and you can even help to collect important scientific data on this mass migration.
Then, even as the exhausted fish lie contented blowing smoke rings from some dimly-lit riverbed, May follows with more Plymouth CRAFT offerings:
From building an earthen oven to drop-spinning to a class on the art of splitting logs into workable project material with Peter Follansbee and me–
This little non-profit is busting out quality workshops like so many herring pushing upstream.
See you there?
