Working Still plays
4pm - 5pm +
Jamie Pierce and the Dirty Water Brass Band will circumnavigate Dudley Pond starting on the east side of Dudley Peninsula across from the Dudley Chateau around and work their way around the pond. The two captains figure out their own route but the general direction will be to start on the Chateau side, then around the peninsula towards the outlet and then towards Mansions Beach. Or they could go the other way!
Every year we have at least 40 boats, kayaks, canoes, pontoon boats, paddle boards, and swimmers following the band around the pond so join us by land or sea.
Help us celebrate the DPA's 50th anniversary!!! To get the festivities going, Steve Robb's band, Working Still, will be performing starting at 3pm. See the DPA secretary email for location.
REMINDER: 50th Celebration tickets still on sale!!!
