Saturday, Sep 15, 2012 is Tivoli Day in Oak Bluffs.

(Click here for information on Tivoli Day)

Every year in September, Oak Bluffs hosts its annual street fair and block party known as Tivoli Day.  Where did the name come from… and where can you find the Tivoli on MV !   You can’t, only memories of it remain.

 The two story, full block Tivoli Dance Hall stood from 1901 until 1964 where the Oak Bluffs Town Hall is today. The entire top floor was a dance hall.  The bottom floor housed shops and an ice cream parlor.

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
