P-Town kicks off summer season with a hot, wild weekend for young lesbians.
The unofficial start to the summer season begins with Memorial Day Weekend in Provincetown, Mass. Women take over the LGBT mecca five times every summer, and Memorial Day Weekend is the biggest, the youngest, and the rowdiest. The weekend features awesome events put together by LesbianNightLife and ProvincetownForWomen.
They have a great deal for you with the LNL Party Pass Bracelet, which gets you in to all the events below and has discounts at restaurants, shopping, and more around Provincetown. Extra perks include priority entry into all the women's events.
THURSDAY: Grab a drink, relax, and get cozy before the weekend crowd flows in at the Meet-N-Greet at the Harbor Lounge on the waterfront. You can pick up your LNL Bracelets for the weekend here on Thursday night. (Harbor Lounge, 7-10 p.m., 359 Commercial Street. Open to all)
FRIDAY: Friday is when the ladies arrive in full force. You'll find crowds of them shopping, enjoying the many restaurants and bars Provincetown has to offer, and getting ready for the big night out. Friday Night starts off with RISE, a dance party, at the Paramount located in the Crown and Anchor Hotel. (Paramount at The Crown & Anchor, 9 p.m.-1 a.m., 247 Commercial Street)
SATURDAY: Head over to MacMillian Pier for the FREEDOM Women's Boat Cruise featuring two DJs -- La Nena and Frenchy -- spanning multiple deck levels. (1 p.m. - 4 p.m., boarding starts at 12:30pm. Single tickets are $30 in advance, $40 at the dock. Included in LNL Party Bracelet)
After the cruise, get something to eat and rest up, because it continues Saturday night at the REBEL dance party. (9 p.m.-1 a.m. Paramount at the Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial Street)
SUNDAY: Too much fun already this weekend? Too much shopping? Get some brunch and then head over at noon to the MEGA Women's Pool Party with DJ Jamila Afrika. (12 p.m. - 5 p.m., cover charge TBA, included in LNL Party Bracelet. Crown and Anchor, 247 Commercial Street)
Wrap it up at REVOLT: The Weekend Closing Party. Celebrate the end of the holiday as DJ Dena pilots this ship and the LNL dancers and guests wear some outrageous (and damn sexy) costumes. Guest are encouraged to participate! (9 p.m.-1 a.m., Paramount at the Crown & Anchor, 247 Commercial Street)
If parties and cruises aren't your thing, the weekend also features performances by the Indigo Girls, comedy by Melissa Ferrick and Judy Gold, and as always, the unrivalled relaxation of Provincetown's beaches.
The best deal is the LNL Party Pass Bracelet, which is $75 if purchased in advance and includes access to all the events listed here including the FREEDOM Boat Cruise. That's already saving you at least $25 over paying at the door over the course of the weekend. Plus, you don't have to stand in line waiting to get in.
You also get discounts at select shops and restaurants around Provincetown. Visit LesbianNightLife's Memorial Day Weekend website for more information and to purchase bracelets and tickets.
