In yet another sign that spring is indeed on its way, the third annual Cake-walk will take place at the Agricultural Hall in West Tisbury on March 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

For the uninitiated, this cakewalk is not a metaphor for easy doings. It’s as near to literal as one can get. Then again, cakes don’t actually walk, but cakemakers do.

The idea is simple. Bake a cake and bring it to the Agricultural Hall. Cakes are then displayed as everyone participates in a musical chairs type of extravaganza. Where one happens to be standing when the music stops determines which cake he or she will take home.

There will also be face painting, raffles, a cupcake decorating table and prizes. The event is a fundraiser for the West Tisbury fourth graders’ trip to England in 2015. Kudos to the kids for getting started early.
