The Harvestfest Lineup: A Contra Dance AND a Polka Band!

Bearskin Neck Leathers, the legendary shop on Old Harbor Road on Bearskin Neck, is sponsoring the special Harvestfest appearance of an equally legendary North Shore band, The Buddy Walker Band, during the festival on Saturday, October 19th. Buddy Walker's band is a classic Polish polka band founded nearly 65 years ago -- and still lead by the original bassist and founder, Buddy Walker. Don't miss a performance by the band, located in front of Bearskin Neck Leathers and performing at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm on Saturday, October 19th! For more information on the performance, check out to Bearskin Neck Leathers' Facebook page.

Git yer dancin' shoes on! Harvestfest includes a contra dance this year, sponsored by our local dance organizers, Cape Ann Contra Dance. We're really excited about this addition to the festival! A caller accompanied by real live actual musicians will be on hand. It will be epic. Dancing in Dock Square? Yes! We're soooooooo there, as the kids say. For more information, click HERE.
