Every year the Boston Pops come to Cape Cod on the first Sunday in August for a wonderful concert on the Village Green in Hyannis. The concert is hosted by the Arts Foundation of Cape and the proceeds all benefit their programs on behalf of local arts education, and arts organizations.
The location is beautiful and the music always sounds amazing. Each year they invite a different famous celebrity to conduct the first song in the second half of the concert after intermission (such as Ray Romano, William Shatner, and other very cool people).
The event organizers really know what they are doing! It is a totally relaxing way to enjoy Cape Cod on a summer afternnon. Guests can sit on the lawn (bring a folding chair or a blanket)or in festival seating or at VIP tables of ten. Each type of seating provides a great view and of course great sound.
Before the concert they have performances from other musical groups all afternoon and sell good food at low prices. So people come early for the best seats and make a day of it.
This is one of my family's very,very favorite events all year long!
