Patti Page Way on Old Cape Cod



If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air, take a ride to Barnstable on the Cape and visit a new part of Old Cape Cod.

Last month the Town of Barnstable dedicated a street to Patti Page, the 1950s pop singer whose Barnstable County anthem “Old Cape Cod” hit the charts in 1957 and has evoked “miles of green beneath a sky of blue” for the visitors, and wannabe visitors to the Cape, ever since.

Patti Page Way leads you to the Cape Cod Visitors Center. The 82-year-old singer, whose memoirs were published last year, has visited the Cape many times over the years, but never before she sang “Old Cape Cod”. She attended some books signings along with the dedication ceremony in February. Have a look here for some photos of The Singing Rage - Miss Patti Page, as well a great Cape Cod Times article here.
