Who's Your Daddy? Grilling Competition
100 Still River Dr, New Milford, CT 06776, USA
Father's Day is a great holiday that sadly falls by the wayside and can be overshadowed by Mother's Day and all of the flowers and brunches. We get it, but Dads aren't known for high tea or brunch. Dads are known as the great keepers of the grill. Captain of the patio. Chief Grilling Officer. Dads pride themselves on being the master of THIS domain. So why not put your tongs are?
For the first time ever, Harrybrooke is hosting a grilling competition, presented by House of Warmth, for the Dads on their day! Put it all on the line and stand toe to toe, spatula to spatula with the other Dads and show them ALL that you are Beef Daddy of them all. The Pork-Father of the community. The Grill Daddy-Mac! And in the process, raise a few bucks for the park that allows you to grill any day of the year? We will supply the location and the judges ... you bring the rest.
Don't grill? Well we bet you like to eat! Come sample the greatest the community has to offer! Sample the competition or grab some food. It's ALLLL good. We will be serving cold beverages that you don't need to be a Dad to enjoy. Bring the whole family, enjoy some games and vote for the best!
