4th Annual Inter-Dependence Day

Things are falling into place for the Corner’s 4th Annual Inter-Dependence Day Party on July 12th, and it promises to be lots of fun! Each year we learn what works best as we try new things. This year’s changes:

1) Food Carts! Let the pros do the cooking while we scoop the free Elevated ice cream. The local food cart line-up this year includes Zoog’s BBQ, the Cape Cleare Salmon Cart, Dented Buoy Pizza, Crust Hand Pies, and others.

2) Square Dancing! Wild Phil and the Buffalo Gals, a fabulous local traditional dance band, will be belting out the tunes while caller Joanne Pontrello will be guiding us through the steps. No experience required!

3) And the date… In the past we’ve always tried to pick the Saturday closest to July 4th. Now we’ve decided to move it later by a week so as not to compete with fiddle tunes and everyone’s holiday plans. Spread out the fun!

One thing that needs no tweaking whatsoever is the world’s sweetest all-ages all-species talent show. It starts at 7:00 and keeps a quick pace – 18 five minute acts. Aba Kiser will be returning from New York once again to emcee (and perform!).

Feeling brave, like you might want to take to the stage yourself? Great! The sign-up sheet is posted in the store. Drop by the store or call and claim your time-slot. Can’t wait to give you a standing ovation!

So… a rundown on the timing:

5-7 pm: Food Carts, Live Music with Square Dancing, and Free Ice Cream Cones.

7-9pm: Talent show

Looking forward to seeing you there!

      Absolutely! Wouldn’t be an Inter-Dependence Day party without our talent show! Goes from 7-9. The sign-up for the 5 minute acts is hanging on the store front door. Hope to see you there.
