No Festival, but alewives and birds do not care

Yet again no festival this year, but we will be at the Fish  Ladder on weekends to welcome visitors and, in other posts below this, we have announced a road race, a concert and a raffle quilt.  Keep checking here for more information about our plans.

The alewives run  during May 1-June 15, but most reliably from Mother’s Day to the end of the first week of June.   Earlier has been a little better than later in recent years. For photographers and bird watchers early morning or later in the day are generally better for the ospreys and eagles.
