The Pajama Brunch

If you think fantastic dining stops with a New Year’s Eve meal, think again. One of Provincetown’s best traditions is New Year’s Day Brunch. Wake up and getting moving after ringing in 2017 with a can’t-miss Pajama Brunch at Mews Restaurant and Cafe, or any of the other restaurants in town. A favorite among locals, there is no better way to start the year than will a big meal shared with friends.

New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge

If brunch won’t get you going on January 1, 2017, take a dip into the frigid Cape Cod Bay at the New Year’s Day Polar Bear Plunge. At, participants gather on Johnson Street before stripping down to their swimsuits and making the mad dash into the Provincetown Harbor. After splashing around in the cold water, the fun moves inside. Visitors gather to dry off and warm up with cocktails and chili at the Harbor Lounge before hitting the town for a night of parties and events.

First Light Fireworks Show
