PRESS RELEASE-TASTE OF CHAPPAQUA
Sidewalk Sale days will wrap up with food and music celebration on
Saturday, July 21!
Our three-day Sidewalk Sale event — Thursday July 19 through Saturday
July 21 — culminates in culinary celebration, with local restaurants
showing off for our 1st Annual Taste of Chappaqua, sponsored by the
Chappaqua-Millwood Chamber of Commerce. Food establishments — both
old favorites and new-comers — will provide samples of their delectable food
on Saturday, July 21, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Taste of Chappaqua will also feature three contests — Best Dessert, Best
Pizza and Best Sandwich — judged by shoppers and passers-by from 12:00
to 4:00 p.m. as they visit the participating food merchant booths.
Scorecards will be available at each of the tasting tables. Contestants will be
scored based on presentation, taste and creativity. One winner will be chosen
in each of the three categories. We’ll announce the winners at an awards
ceremony at 4:00 p.m. at the Chamber table near Desires by Mikolay, where
ribbons will be awarded.
And since this event coincides with Sidewalk Sale Days, there will be games,
giveaways and great shopping! The Chamber of Commerce will have a table
giving away balloons, car magnets and informational materials about the
Chamber and its mission to create a vibrant business district.
And what’s a party without music?
Amble down to the gazebo for a free concert from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. by the
kids from Renaissance Education, Music & Sports. From their home in
the Bronx, the band travels all over the area with make-you-wanna dance,
inspirational songs. On Saturday, you’ll find the kids in two’s and three’s,
positioned around the downtown, serenading us before their 12:30 p.m.
