On Saturday, August 10th (rain or shine) the West Stockbridge Cultural Council will host the 10th Annual Zucchini Festival in the town center, Rts. 41/102, ¼ mile west of Exit 1 of the Mass Pike. The Festival is for families in the community and visitors alike to gather together to have fun! Attendance is free, with small fees for tickets at game booths. All are welcome! This year our logo is Fly Me to Zee Moon, blasting off to another great time.
Festivities begin at 10:00AM with the popular Pet Show & Parade. Cash prize for the best costumed pet. Continuing popular events include and the famous “Zuck” Races (with green plastic ducks) in the Williams River, Zucchini Mountain Rings, Zucchini Car Races and a Best Zucchini Costume Contest. Also the firemen’s dunking booth, zocket toss, face painting, gondola rides, the 4H sponsored Petting Zoo, food booths, craft booths and live music. Some favorite activities including Euro Bungi, Blow Up Obstacle Course, and Bounce House - fun and challenging.
There’s lots of opportunity to win other prizes, too, including Zucchini-related activities such as Zucchini Decorating, a Zucchini Catapult (hilarious), Zucchini Weigh-off and competitions for the weirdest, and best looking Zucchinis. The best-tasting Zucchini recipe wins the Bake-off Contest (tastings available post judging).
The Food Court will be open all day featuring West Stockbridge restaurants and food purveyors as well as all manner of Zucchini concoctions – baked, fried, roasted, in ice cream etc.
