Either way, you have some good choices this weekend.
The Eastport United Methodist Church will host its 38th Annual Peach Festival from 12-5 p.m. this Saturday. Held on the first Saturday of every August, the festival will feature a silent auction and a bake table with peach cakes, pickled beets and authentic peach jelly. Admission is $15 for adults and $7 for children.
Guests have the option to eat in or carry out. There will be delectable barbeque, an oven-bake chicken dinner with, of course, peach dessert items.
Before the festival kicks off, there will be a bake sale Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with peach jam ($5), peach jelly ($4), peach cake ($8), and peach pie ($10).
Money raised from the festival and bake sale will benefit the church’s outreach programs and mission projects. Visit Eastportumc.org for more details on the Festival.
In the mood for seafood? The Annapolis Rotary Club will host its 68th Annual Crab Feast at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium Friday from 5-8 p.m. This event is the world’s largest crab feast that boasts 3,400 ears of corn, 1,800 hot dogs, 320 bushels of crab, 150 pounds of beef barbeque, 100 gallons of crab soup and a seemingly unlimited amount of sodas and beers.
The Rotary Club expects an attendance of around 2,500 people. The event benefits local community and cultural organizations. Admission is $60 for adults, $20 for children 3-12 and free for children three and under.
The feast is all-you-can eat and will host a bake sale and cake raffle with Crab Feast t-shirts and other memorabilia available for purchase. It will be held rain or shine, as most tables are under cover.
If there would be one word to describe yourself after this weekend, it won’t be “hungry” if these events have anything to do with it.
