22 May 2017
PLEASE NOTE This is an earlier date than in past years!
WHAT TIME DOES IT START? Festivities begin at noon . . . although the tickets say "serving until 2 p.m." we'll be there until the food is gone.
TELL US ABOUT WHAT WE ARE HAVING TO EAT. Planked and filleted (that's right, we have already taken care of the bones) shad dinners are a prized culinary treat. The technique - believed to have originated with native tribes - is where shad is nailed to large boards and baked in front of a pit of hot coals, and it is a long held New England tradition.
But there will be plenty of other great things including chowder, venison chili, a variety of cold salads, chicken, hot dogs, watermelon and more. You won't be going away hungry.
Food allergies? Let us know before we serve you.
WHAT ELSE? Stay and play horseshoes, meet up with old friends; get acquainted with new folks in town; enjoy the atmosphere and the view.
Advance tickets: Adults $20; over 65 $15; under 5 - $6
Day of event: Adults $25; over 65 $20; under 5 $8 ~ a bargain at the price!
PARKING: Handicapped parking is available by the pavilion. Come early to park. Come early because parking can get hectic. Please follow instructions from the parking lot team!
