Tea Party Boat

Chestertown will be hosting the annual Chestertown Tea Party Festival this weekend, May 27-29.  The festivities include craft vendors and demonstrations, singing, dancing, wine tastings, folks dressed in period costume, and of course plenty of Eastern Shore fare to taste.  The main attraction is the reenactment of the Tea Toss which originally occured in May 1774.  Rowdy Chestertown residents gather at the town center, then make their way down to the Chester River, where they row out to the ships to 'toss the tea'.  Other activities include a colonial parade on Saturday and a Raft Race on Sunday.  Admission is free.  For more information, visit the official website:  Chestertown Tea Party
