It's going to be a beautiful weekend!
Whatever you plan to do, hope it's a happy weekend with two things to consider for fun:
an outdoor family concert (very cool)in West Boylston and a Hoedown in North Andover. Check out our calendar on our homepage for more ideas: www.baystateparent.com/

SUNDAY AUGUST 29
Hoedown 2010 at Smolak Farms
315 South Bradford St
North Andover, MA

Question: What could be more enjoyable than walking through endless acres of beautiful farm land as the sun gently kisses the fruit laden trees? Answer: How about an afternoon of Greater-Boston’s best chefs cooking and doing demos, live bluegrass music, games, contests and more fun than you can shake a stick at?!!!
On Sunday, August 29th, 2010 from 1:00PM – 5:00PM these worlds will blend (or collide depending on how much beer and wine will flow via sponsors such as Narragansett Beer and the Wine Connextion) as how2heroes and Smolak Farms present Hoedown 2010! With over a 1,000 attendees slated to appear, guests can look forward to everything from BBQ stations, chef demos, a pig roast, live bluegrass music, a 3-legged race, hayrides, a dunk tank, an old fashioned store, line dancing lessons, “The Hoedown Throwdown Baking Contest” (an amateur baking contest presented by King Arthur Flour and how2heroes using farm fresh fruits & vegetables as the main ingredient and King Arthur Flour) and classes and workshops offered onsite all afternoon. Restaurants/Chefs slated to demo and have food stations include: Chef Jason Bond of the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro, Chef Chris Parsons from Parson’s Table, Chef Antonio Bettencourt of Sixty2 on Wharf Restaurant, Chef Brian Poe of Poe's Kitchen at the Rattlesnake, Chef Ben Hasty of Brasserie JO, Eunice Feller of Bread & Chocolate, Michael Reppucci from Orzo Trattorio and Alina Eisenhauer of Sweet to name just a few!
