Boston 25 Morning News anchor Gene Lavanchy will kick off summer 2019 as emcee of the 11th Annual Cape Cod Quahog Day.
Lavanchy will host the festivities at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 21 at the oceanfront Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth. Lavanchy will work alongside Cape Cod’s infamous “Doug”—the region’s beloved official Quahog since 2009—who will deliver his highly anticipated annual summer forecast and predict how many beach days we can look forward to in 2019!
Quahog Day, presented by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce and sponsored this year by Cape Air, is a true rite of passage into summer for Cape Cod residents and visitors alike. Upon his arrival, Doug will be escorted to his prognostication perch by his Quahog Security Detail, a team of black-suited men and women armed with clamming rakes. During his “Prognostication Ceremony,” Doug will whisper his prediction into the ear of his human
sidekick, Captain Johnny Quahog of the Quahog Republic, who will then relay the sunny forecast to Lavanchy to share with the attending crowd.
As this year’s Quahog Day emcee, Lavanchy says he is honored to share the hard-shelled mollusk Doug’s official prediction of how many beach days lie ahead for the summer season!
