Cabot Creamery Community Tour to stop in Fredericksburg
Fredericksburg has been chosen as one of eight stops along a 2,300-mile bike tour that Cabot Creamery is sponsoring to promote volunteerism, cooperatives and community service–not to mention the dairy products Cabot sells in supermarkets.
On June 9, the tour will stop for an event in Old Mill Park near downtown Fredericksburg. This free event takes place from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. It is one of eight weekend events the tour will hold as it travels from Miami up to Portland, ME.
Here’s Cabot’s description of what will take place at the event. For an event run by a cheesemaker, it doesn’t appear to be super food-focused, but there are cheese s’mores:
Set in beautiful Old Mill Park, this celebration will include a tethered hot air balloon displayed by the Electric Coop (weather permitting), as well as demos by real linemen defying gravity by climbing an electric pole. Casting for Recovery, an organization that allies fly fishing with the fight against breast cancer, will be on hand to do fly casting demonstrations. And don’t miss out as Cabot’s very own chef Jimmy Kennedy makes his famed Cheddar S’mores for you to try!
Visit AARP’s Create the Good Booth and write the volunteerism or good works you’ve done on a strip of cloth—at the end of the day, all the strips will be sewn together in a banner of stunning positivity and community spirit! And just for the kids, there will be a petting zoo, barrel train rides, face painting, and bike mechanics on hand to check your wheels for safety!
