Kids! Come make the BIGGEST bubbles of your lives -- FREE -- with GRANDPOP BUBBLES™! The Chapel Church (www.thechapelchurch.com) will sponsor GRANDPOP BUBBLES™ and his amazing "Bubble Festival," all the way from Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. .............................. ~~ Bounce Houses ~~ Games ~~ Special appearance by “Ramses” the official UNC mascot ~~ Food Trucks ~~ Baconessence ~~ Maple View Ice cream ~~ Live Music ~~ Face painting .......................... Grandpop Bubbles will bring his bubble wands, poles, basins, buckets, and 90 Gallons of SPECIAL BUBBLE JUICE for as many as possible to enjoy bubbling with #GPOPB. You'll share Grandpop Bubbles' bubble juice and 4' bubble wands and his 3' bubble "Tristrings" (two sticks and strings) to make bubbles. He guarantees that you will make the BIGGEST bubbles of your life -- whatever your age. All will be amazed by the giant bubbles from Grandpop Bubbles' 10', 16’, and now 20’ poles. Bubbles can be 10', 20', 30', and even longer! Some adults may want to try. ..................... There will be so many things for the kids and kids-at-heart to do... ~~ Make BUBBLES and BUBBLE RAINBOWS! ~~ Try to escape the GHOST OF BLOB. ~~ Run away from Bubble GHOSTS, DRAGONS, WHALES, and DINOSAURS! ~~ Pop all the cars of a BUBBLE TRAIN if you can reach them! ~~ Hit the floor with DANCING BUBBLES! ~~ Rain goes through my bubbles, so I will be there unless co-sponsor must cancel event. ~~ Weather forecasts won't tell you, but Grandpop Bubbles predicts that the weather phenomenon he calls the BUBBLE BLIZZARD may occur... (about every half hour). Poppers will freak out! ----------------- Parents will supervise their kids as they make bubbles and bring goggles if desired. Bubble at your own risk. A few KINDNESSES are in order, so teach your children the following before coming and while bubbling... 1. BORROW wands and tristrings and SHARE when the time comes... Children are welcome to bring their wands and blowers or use Grandpop Bubbles' wands and tristrings. 2. Teach kids to RESIST the temptation to STIR the mix. Stirring makes lots of FROTH. FROTH in the mix is BAD for bubbles. Rather, just press the wand to the bottom of the bucket and slide out slowly, sideways is best. 3. We like "POPPERS," but when someone asks you to NOT pop their bubbles, please respect that. Grandpop Bubbles will make enough bubbles for everyone to pop. Only pop bubbles with FINGERS or NOSES. No swinging or throwing stuff, OK? (if we do not follow that request it gets crazy.) 4. You might consider letting the really GIANT Bubbles Live, to enjoy the way they shape-shift. (a.) - If the bubble is smaller than you then go ahead and POP IT! (b.) - If it is bigger than you, then you might want to LET IT LIVE so people can admire the beauty! (c.) - Then, instead of popping the giant bubbles, try to get under them, then BLOW PUFFS of air into them to make little bubbles inside the big bubbles. It's more fun than popping and it lets the giant bubbles live longer so we can enjoy their shapes and colors. 5. RESPECT the equipment you borrow, please. Keep in the area and do not carry while popping any bubbles. Never leave the wands or tristrings on the ground where they get broken and dirty, but return to the cart or bucket home or hand them to a volunteer. ------------------------------------ Grandpop Bubbles enjoys bubbling after a rain or in a drizzle -- perfect conditions: bigger bubbles, and more colorful! Bubbling will go on if at all possible, however, Chapel Hill Baptist will be calling the shots concerning weather. ------------------------------------ Bubbly regards, Pastor Brandon Joyner, [email protected] and Brian Maloney, [email protected] www.facebook.com/GrandpopBubbles Bubble Hotline: 929-BUBBLE-ME (929-282-2536)

In most cases such encounters are rare on a beach, but not in Oak Bluffs.  It is a great informal institution that has survived for over 60 years without a constitution, bylaws, officers or any formal organizational structure other than the imperative of caring friendships. This early morning swim is not only invigorating, but healthy. Come to the sea at 7:30 in the morning for this ritual swim in the waters between the Island Queen and the Steamship Authority. All Polar Bears are not the same. There are three types of Bears that meet at 7:30 in the morning. There are the swimming bears, the non-swimming bears or bear-watchers and talkers, and the exercise bears, started by Ruth Bonaparte. They form a friendship circle in the water to work out. All are swimmingly friendly, cordial, very smart, and consider themselves totally non-elitist. Though many are accomplished there are no pedigree discussions here. They come to relax, reflect and renew. This is the old Martha's Vineyard in case you thought it no longer existed and they take their history and legacy seriously. As Bear Eleanor Hughes said, "We have our own chamber of commerce. If you want to know what's going on socially, where to eat, shop, find entertainment, or meet new people - come here. They are comrades and friends and everyone is welcome."   The Polar Bears begin their season every July Fourth with a prayer for continued friendship, for friends who are infirm, deceased, or need a special thought. Evelyn Tyner said the prayer for years. Now her daughter Betsy Stewart, a minister, prays. After prayer, they sing the 1985 musical hit made famous by Dionne Warwick, That's What Friends Are For. They have two mottos: "You have to spread your wings in order to find out how high you can fly," and "I am the source of my joy and infinite possibilities." Perhaps it is this strong belief system underpinning a "can-do" philosophy that has allowed the Polar Bears to survive all these years. I saw them in the context of shared history repeating itself over time. Then there was this connection to water and its relevance in the biblical sense of water as a cleanser, rejuvenator and healer in the African American baptismal experience. It surfaced as the tie that binds, underpinned by a conviction in the value of inclusiveness that expands the boundaries of diversity, transcends physical condition, color, race or belief - transforming the microcosmic reality of what America might be.

FOR THE FAMILIES Island Alpaca http://www.islandalpaca.com/ Island Alpaca Company of Martha's Vineyard began in 2004 with the purchase of 19 acres of land and an antique post-and-beam barn that once stood in Export PA. Over the next two years, the barn was assembled, pastures were cleared, and fencing installed. The original purchase of eight alpacas in 2004 had grown to a starter herd of 31, which moved into the barn in 2006. Today, Island Alpaca has a select herd of over 50 colorful Huacaya alpaca. Island Alpaca Farm is located in Massachusetts on the island of Martha's Vineyard. We offer alpaca breeding, alpaca sales, year-round, or winter alpaca boarding (agisting), educational workshops for both children and adults, and continuing customer support. Island Alpaca Farm is perfectly sized to offer personalized service and attention, along with a fine selection of breeding stock, both herd sires and junior herd sires as well as pet/fiber quality alpaca.  $5 pp admission from May 1 to October 31 annually The Flying Horses Carousel The Flying Carousel is the nation’s oldest platform carousel and has been designated by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a national landmark.

The roundtrip fare for each person would be $10.00, so I suggest buying a One Day Pass for $8 – this allows for unlimited travel on all routes for the day and saves $2 per person. What a relaxing way to end the day! THIS IS  MUST SEE! You can grab a bite to eat from Menemsha Market which has the best lobster rolls on the island! The food from Larsens' is even better! Just be sure to bring wine if you want to have some because you can't buy it there.The kids play on the beach and the adults wait for sunset. This is a favorite beach on the island to watch the sunset. The water is calm and you can find marine life near the shore line. It's a great place to watch the sunset with the adoring crowd.  Just to note the beach each is rocky and not the greatest swimming beach, however is fun for kids to explore to catch crabs and small fish with their nets. The sunsets are breath taking . Come very early when coming over to see the sunset. There is limited parking, and very often it is impossible to find a parking spot. The "sunset crowd" begins to gather a good 2 hours before the sunset. BUT - there's also a 2 hr time limit on parking in the adjacent lot, until around 6 or 8 pm. (sorry, I don't exactly remember). The police DO watch and ticket cars! There are also remote parking lots. The best choice - take the bus there. You can get there from almost anywhere on island, and all-day bus pass (use as many times and distances as you like) costs only $8, and is much cheaper than a parking ticket! You can get there by car or bus... Cabs travel to there but it may cost you $50... and the bus is more entertaining and serves as an informal tour guide. :) The cuisine is fresh out of the water shellfish, lobsters, clams, oysters etc... Bringing your own alcohol is welcomed and recommended as they only sell water there..most families set up a picnic area on the beach and eat dinner and play board games until the sunsets... Very relaxing and beautiful :) The crowd usually applauds and sings America The Beautiful  Public restroom are near by and near by shops have take out.  The sunset is awesome and it's the best place to appreciate God's glory! See ya there!  Night of The Divine 9 Come out and represent your fraternity, your sorority, your line brothers & sisters.

Robert Price Presents is an evening of comedy, music and improvisation from the manic pixie dream boy himself. An assortment of guest artists join the feaux Guy Faux at QED Astoria every second Tuesday at 7:30.  Robert Price is a magnetic scarecrow from Houston, Texas. This semi-femme boyscout waluigi is a Bachelor of Fine Arts, a Tommy Tune Award Winner and a causual fruit juggler. When he’s not writing songs on the four-string tenor guitar, he’s writing plays in iambic pentameter or writing new stand up comedy for Robert Price Presents (QED Astoria every second Tuesday at 7:30). Sometimes the liquid-white-chocolate-center-of-attention improvises with Comedysportz New York, The Cheep Show, or Off Top, the hip hop improv collective. He was born on the 28th of May in 1993 at 12:18am in Chapel Hill, NC. He will die while dancing a little too freaky.
