|Salem Maritime Festival|
Heritage Days' official kick-off is on Friday, August 5th with the Coyote Run concert at Salem Maritime, the National Park in Salem. There's a lot of great buzz about Coyote Run - they are a Celtic rock band that is said to have incredible energy. Bring a picnic to this free concert on Derby Wharf and enjoy the harbor breeze, great music, and good company.
Heritage Days events are all about food and fitness, with the Mayor's Night Out visiting several downtown restaurants, the annual Pizza Contest, an Ice Cream Bowl, Witch's Cup Bike Race, a Junior Triathlon and a 5K for the runners out there. Kids' Night on the Common is August 12, and the
annual Essex Street Fair is August 13-14. I am looking forward to Salem Theatre Company's annual Improv on the Bricks on the 13th and 14th. Oh, and the Phillips House Car Meet on August 14. There are more than forty
