*** UPDATE: Due to weather predictions for the weekend, the 4th annual WES Fest has been postponed until Saturday, June 22 ***

This Memorial Day weekend is shaping up to be a big one. This official start of the summer season will include the 4th annual WES Fest in Wellfleet on Saturday.  Sponsored by the Wellfleet Elementary School PTA, WES Fest offers an inexpensive day of fun for kids and their parents.

If your kids like rides, there will be plenty of them including the rapid 70' slide and pirate ship courtesy of North American Amusements. Kids and adults can try their luck playing the many carnival games including ring toss, clown toss and putting green.

There will be lots of delicious food for sale, live entertainment by Sarah Swain, the Rip It Ups and the Oh Boys and a craft fair. Local businesses from Wellfleet and neighboring towns are sponsoring rides and activities.

All proceeds benefit WES PTA programs. WES PTA raised over $8,000 at last year's 3rd annual WES Fest.

The WES Fest will be held at Bakers Field on Kendrick Ave. in Wellfleet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 25, 2013.
