Blueberry festival set in Blue Hill
The First Congregational Church of Blue Hill’s fifth annual Blueberry Fest will be held Saturday, August 3, launched by a blueberry pancake breakfast in the church’s Fisher Hall.
Pancakes will be available from 7 to 10 a.m.
During the day, until 3 p.m., there will be continual music and children’s games, a dunk tank, a jump house, and contests with prizes awarded by the “Blueberry Lady.” Cake walks, a silent auction, antique car rides, blueberry baked goods, white elephant treasures, and used books will be available, as well as fresh blueberries, blueberry granola, and festival souvenirs.
There will be a pig roast this year. Hot dogs, chili, ice cream, blueberry smoothies, and blueberry shortcake are also on the menu.
The festival will also feature local artisans and antique dealers on the church lawn and at the American Legion Hall across the street.
