The Aquinnah Public Library will be host to a community celebration on Saturday, August 30, from noon to 3 p.m. The event is free and will be held on the grounds of the library on State Road in Aquinnah. In case of rain, the event will be held inside the old town hall across State Road.

Two musical guests will perform: the Wampanoag tribe’s own Black Brook Drummers will perform at noon and Sol y Canto, a popular Latin music group from Cambridge at 2 p.m.

The community celebration will be a great family event with face painting available, works by local artists on exhibit, a visit from the Aquinnah fire engine, a used book sale courtesy of the Friends of the Aquinnah Public Library, bread offered from the Orange Peel, drinks and ice cream. Bring your picnic lunch and join us. Please carpool, ride the VTA, bike or walk to the library if at all possible. Parking is limited.
