On Friday October 20, 27 and November 3 ferry service will leave Boston at 5:30 PM and return at 9:00 PM.

One year ago, during Ptown’s Carnival Parade our friend Kyle took this picture of Sergio and me on Commercial Street. Last year’s theme was the 1980s; not that you’d be able to tell from what we were wearing.
Below is a quick video I posted on Instagram of one of the 1980s themed house parties we attended before the parade.
Wes dressed as Batman for 2014 Carnival: Comic Book Capers
Tomorrow Sergio and I are heading out on the morning ferry to Provincetown. Although the theme week runs from Saturday to Saturday, the celebrations climax on Thursday as Commercial Street closes for people to show off their individual and group costumes — this is my favorite part of the week — followed by the annual parade.
This year’s theme is Gods & Goddesses.
