coolcars"From early April to mid-May,  daffodils grace Nantucket's roadsides, gardens and shop windows. This blossoming is the focal point of the Annual Daffodil Festival that goes from April 26 to the 28. The Annual Daffodil Festival is a full-scale celebration of winter’s thaw, joyous for both islanders and visitors alike. Come wear your daffy hat, watch the car parade, have a tailgate picnic and welcome spring! 

The Daffodil Festival’s grand event held on Saturday is the Annual Antique Car Parade, featuring over 100 daffodil-bedecked vintage cars. After winding through town the cars make their way across the island to charming Siasconset. Once there, participants join residents and visitors for the Annual Daffodil Tailgate Picnic. What better way to herald the arrival of spring than an al fresco lunch on the lush lawns of this picturesque village. Picnic fare ranges from elaborate gourmet cuisine served on fine china to box lunches and burgers." The weather is supposed to be really nice this weekend so check it out if you feel like going for a drive!
