It’s time to mark your calendar and secure your ticket to one of the summer’s most popular events, the Lloyd Center for the Environment’s CLAMBAKE XXXII, “Celebrating Science and Education!”
Those who have attended this event in the past, know it to be the unofficial “kick-off” of the South Coast’s summer season, with its glorious seaside setting.
Festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. on the evening of Friday, July 14, at the DCR Demarest Lloyd State Park in Dartmouth. Hors d’oeuvres will be served at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner stations opening at 7:00 p.m. With a limited number of seats available, advance reservations are an absolute must.
“This year’s event is going to bring lots of fun surprises for everyone! It all begins with a new exciting menu featuring a raw bar, and stations that will include lobster rolls, chowder, our traditional steamers, assorted sliders and other tasty items. For after dinner entertainment, we’ll have a DJ mixing up the music of the 1970’s, so dress disco-themed and put on your dancing shoes!” event chair Kelly Rebello spoke enthusiastically about the event.
“For those that like tradition, the Clambake will continue with a top-shelf open bar, and an extraordinary silent auction. With new items coming in daily, the auction currently features round-trip airline tickets, Disney World park-hopper passes, exciting nights out on the town, fabulous work by our local artists, and much, much more!”
