Spring Picks as Fresh as Daffodils

ACK Daffodil Festival Daffy Weekend Murray's Toggery Shop Nantucket Nantucket Reds Spring

The month of April on island is synonymous with the arrival Spring and the annual Daffodil Festival. Every year, thousands of beautiful daffodils bloom from ‘Sconset to Madaket, brightening our paths and grassy areas with blankets of yellow. Starting in town, the main highlight is the Antique Car parade which loops through town and up Main Street a few times, eventually ending in Sconset for an afternoon picnic. Walking through Sconset and admiring participants’ classic cars, surround by some high end tailgates is an experience. There are also numerous surrounding activities in town and plenty of nighttime festivities.

For most shopkeepers and business owners, Daffy Weekend also serves as a sort of official beginning of the shopping season; a time to display new merchandise and Spring arrivals. Just as Spring is the reawakening of the season, it’s time to reawaken your wardrobe with our favorite picks below:
