The Edgartown Board of Trade is celebrating a new event, the Pink & Green weekend, from May 11 to May 13 with promotions and discounts on pink and green items. The Edgartown Council on Aging will serve a pink and green meal — salmon primavera with snow peas — at the Anchors, and kids are invited to create their own herb gardens at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. There will be crafts at the library, and special Mother’s Day breakfasts or brunches at the Edgartown Inn, Among the Flowers and the Harbor View Hotel.
The Pink & Green Ball, a fundraiser for the board of trade, will take place Saturday night at the Field Club. The evening will include hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar, music provided by the Sultans of Swing, and a competition for best-dressed pink and green couple. There will also be a best pink and green window contest in town.
Board of trade president Maggie White said she hopes the festivities will usher in the summer season a few weeks early.
