Halloween is Saturday, and many parents are wary of letting their children trick-or-treat because of COVID-19. But there’s nothing spooky about another fall ritual — picking out pumpkins.

Falmouth is reimagining the future of Surf Drive, one of its most iconic coastal roads. On Thursday night, the town asked more than 60 residents for feedback on how they’d like to see the area adapted to meet the impacts of climate change.

I got an email today from Brenda Swain, the executive director of the Falmouth Service Center.  Ordinarily this wouldn’t surprise me.  Since I began to volunteer at Hand in Hand, the Thrift Shop whose profits support the Service Center, I’ve received regular emails that Brenda sends to the hundreds of volunteers who work with her.  

Since Bruno Gallinelli bought his Surf Drive home two years ago, he says he’s invested over $2 million renovating the property.  As coastal erosion and flooding increasingly batter the area, the Town of Falmouth is developing resiliency plans to that coul

Heading east on Surf Drive in Falmouth, a postcard-ready vista unfolds: a mile-and-a-half-long stretch of sandy beach with narrow dunes, osprey nests, the Shining Sea Bike Path, and the landmark town bathhouse that’s survived every hurricane since 1930.

Each year, Labor Day Weekend seems to sneak up before anyone realizes it. The long weekend marks the official end of the fleeting summer season here on Cape Cod, as nights become cooler and visitors pack up and prepare for that last trek back over the bridge. On Saturday, WCAI’s Brian Morris was at a West Falmouth beach for a unique end-of-summer celebration.
