Trials and Sails is a 10 day event held across Essex County and includes a wide range of activities designed to highlight the variety of indoor and outdoor experiences available to the public. This year’s event runs from Friday Sept 20 to Sunday Sept 29 but you can get a headstart tonight in Ipswich at the Ipswich Visitor Center Gallery at the Hall Haskell House 36 South Main Street. A reception will be held there 6-8 PM to “Meet the Woman Business Owners” along the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway (our own Pauline Bresnahan of Pauline’s Gifts is among these women). Art and artisan pieces from these businesses will be shown and offered for sale in the Gallery at the Ipswich Visitor Center until Sunday Sept 22 from 10 AM to 5 PM. It’s a great take. I stopped by yesterday and visited with Anne from Lost Treasures in Rowley. Additional Trails and Sails info available here.
You’ll be hearing more about these events in the upcoming days. My calendar is pretty full of plans to attend a number of them.
