In Provincetown, bears never hibernate for too long: From July 6 to 15, thousands of furry folks frolicked through the seaside resort during Ptown’s annual Bear Week. Highlights included parties like Woof and Beardependance, plus walking tours, crafts fairs, a sneak peek of Bear City 2, boat cruises and an meet-and-greet with straight bear icon Ben Cohen.
