Cape Cod National Seashore Turns 50!

So what do you get a National park - umm - seashore when it turns 50?  How about months long celebrations with concerts, exhibitions, special postal cancellations, parades and even a great big birthday bash with cakes and all.  On August 7, the Cape Cod National Seashore celebrates the 50th anniversary of JFK's signing the legislation making 40 miles of Cape Cod beaches, marshes, ponds and forest into a protected part of our national park system.
