The nation’s first seashore resort bursts into color during Cape May’s 21st Annual Spring Festival, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC), from Friday, April 29 through Sunday, May 8. The city’s charming Victorian gingerbread architecture, critically acclaimed restaurants, lovely green gardens, tree-lined streets and Victorian-era landmarks make it the ideal place to enjoy 10 fun-filled days celebrating the arrival of spring. Rediscover the 1879 Physick Estate on tour with a new theme for 2016: “What the Heck is that Thing? – Victorian Household Innovations.” Learn about the summer hotel of presidents and dignitaries in the Carroll Gallery Exhibit: “Tommy’s Folly: The 200th Anniversary of Congress Hall Hotel.” Experience the thrill of characters interpreting the past on the Cape May Time Capsule Trolley Tour. Be inspired by architectural gems on a Private Homes Tour. Take a Ghosts of Cape May Trolley Tour and learn about Cape May’s “spirit residents.” Solve a mystery as it unfolds around you during Murder Mystery Dinners, and much more, including crafts and collectibles shows, a Victorian fashion show and a Chocolate Lovers’ Feast with seven plated courses.
