Mark the date for the annual Turnip Festival in Eastham. It’s Saturday, Nov. 18, 1 to 4 p.m. at Nauset Regional High School.
Look for 60-plus vendors at the Harvest Marketplace, cook-off competitions, games for kids, music by the Higher String Band and entertainment by Trevor the Juggler, among other activities. (Look for The Cape Codder’s advance story in next week’s issue.)
Meanwhile, if you think you can peel a turnip in record time, sign up for the Turnip Shuck-Off. To become a contestant, enter the drawing at Eastham Public Library. Stop by the library to fill out a form or call 508-240-5950.
Contestants will be drawn on Wednesday, Nov. 15, and if you’re picked you get a turnip motif apron to wear during the competition.
