I'm not sure if it is still a yearly event, but Cape May used to host art shows every spring on the oceanfront boardwalk (promenade). You'll see pictured here a "soft-sculpture" of an elderly couple that almost looks real!
This enjoyable boardwalk art show is hopefully still a yearly event as are many other free events such as concerts at the gazebo just behing the pedestrian mall.
Every summer, several houses and bed & breakfast cottages throw open their doors for tours. This is actually a fundraiser with tickets being sold to benefit a local cause. Tickets are sold around town and at the kiosk at the end of the pedestrian shopping mall in the center of town.
Here is another example of the artwork to be found during the outdoor, art shows on the Cape May boardwalk. I found this painting very appealing. This lady and her furry companions watch out of an apartment window as a parade passes by below. I always felt as if this is a scene from Philadelphia as they have alot of parades!!
I loved this painting and I don't know why I didn't buy it --no money I guess!
