What’s Happening? May 2019
May is a the beginning of “summer” (defined as months without an “R” in their name) here on the island, and the beginning of “beach weather”. Schools let out for the summer in May, locals head to the beaches, and the action really picks up! Expect fun family activities, lots of plant sales (especially for Mother’s Day), food & drink fests, and dancing & music events.
