YARMOUTH – The 37th Annual Yarmouth Seaside Festival wraps up its 3-day run today after attracting big crowds Saturday and Sunday.

The featured event for Monday is the annual sand sculpting contest at Bass River Beach in South Yarmouth. The theme for this year’s competition is “Fall Favorites.”

The sculpting competition regularly attracts everyone from novices to experts.

Also taking place on Monday is a canoe and kayak race that begins at the mouth of the Bass River and heads up river to Wilbur Park in South Yarmouth.

Weekend activities included a bed race, fireworks, an arts and crafts festival, several concerts and a road race. A bonfire on Saturday night attracted hundreds to Bass River Beach.

Many businesses in the Yarmouth area benefit from the three-day event, which brings visitors and locals out to shop and eat in addition to attending festival events.

Due to cost concerns, the annual parade was cancelled this year. Organizers are hoping to bring the popular event back in the future.
