Provincetown's annual Carnival kicks off this weekend.

  • This year's theme is "the land of toys" so get your costumes ready for the kickoff party Sunday night at 10pm at the Crown & Anchor.
  • There's a 5k Sunday morning, a "babes and bois" pool party at noon and a disco duck cruise at 4pm.

If you can't make it to Carnival, you can get a slice of P-town at the MFA with the "Provincetown Printmakers" exhibit.

  • The show features a group of artists who created color woodblock prints of the seaside art colony and LGBTQ+ resort town.

For those staying around Boston this weekend, the Feast of the Madonna Della Cava returns to the North End for its 103rd year.

  • The festivities begin Friday with a blessing, music and raffle and culminates with a mass Sunday at St. Stephen's Church and procession.
