Plymouth and Plimoth Plantation Celebrate 400 years with event happenings


The Mayflower II ship has been restored and has been sailing between Plymouth and New Bedford harbors with its crew in training. All system are a Go! The ship is a popular Plymouth tourist stop. I went up on the deck after patting the 1620 Plymouth Rock where it sticks up out of the sand. There on the wharf where the Mayflower is docked are gift shops, ice cream parlors, food and the trolley bus for touring the Town of Plymouth and Plimoth Plantation.

The town of Plymouth had major special events planned for November and Thanksgiving 2020. Due to the coronavirus precautions being taken, the largest outdoor festivals are cancelled.

You can take a trolley tour of the town and visit the fortress known as Plimoth Plantation. Thanksgiving Day celebrations and The Pilgrim Landing of 1620 activities are annual crowd draws. There are people walking around in Boston and the world who claim to be descendants of the Pilgrims. There is a society in Plymouth that keeps these records straight,

It was going to be a really huge celebration year for the town like none other. Planners had imagined a million people coming to take part in the 400-year Puritan story from 1620 to 2020. It would have been the largest Thanksgiving party ever! But Covid-19 has forced the largest events to cancel. The sold out cruise ship that was to arrive won’t be coming to Plymouth either.
