PROVINCETOWN, Mass. – The Provincetown Tourism Office has launched a social media feed on its recently revamped website that collects Instagram photos and videos and YouTube videos using #myptown. The photo and video feed will share everyday experiences of visitors and residents in the place Travel and Leisure named one of the “quirkiest towns in America.”

As the gallery grows and #myptown develops, the feed will form a window into Provincetown and will be the first door into the year 2020 commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the first landing of the Pilgrims in 1620.

“We’re looking forward to the sights, images and sounds from diverse individual perspectives and the unique characters that give Ptown its identity as one of the most colorful destinations in America.” Provincetown Director of Tourism, Tony Fuccillo, said. “For almost 400 years, Ptown has been home to individuality and freedom of expression, and we’re eager to see this representation in the content people share on our website.”

Whether on Commercial St., with its eclectic shops and array of art galleries, swimming and sun bathing on Ptown’s award winning beaches, Herring Cove and Race Point, taking on activities such as kayaking, parasailing, whale watching, dune hiking and picnicking or experiencing the exciting nightlife, with #myptown, you’ll see why Ptown is truly a special place for everyone.

The Tourism Office launches the new, interactive social media feed in time for the town’s 37th annual Carnival week extravaganza, Aug. 15-21, when tens of thousands of revelers will descend on Ptown with their outrageous costumes. This year’s theme, “Candyland,” sets the mood for fearless revelry and a super sweet street scene, creating the perfect atmosphere for capturing and sharing photos and videos.

Ptown has accumulated prestigious awards for being one of the best cultural towns and coastal destinations in America, including being rated one of “America’s Happiest Seaside Towns 2014” by Coastal Living magazine and Fodor’s Travel and being named one of the “10 Best Small Towns in America” by Fodor’s Travel and Smithsonian Magazine.
