Darien EMS-Post 53 is selling admission tickets for its annual Memorial Day Food Fair at select locations around town between now and Monday, May 27.

"We want to make tickets available to those who would like to avoid long lines and get to the fun as quickly as possible after the parade," said Gayle Close, co-chairman of ticket sales.

Tickets are $5 and will be sold at Palmers, Dunkin Donuts, Jake's Place, Uncle's Deli, Stop & Shop, Darien Sport Shop, McGuane Field Snack Bar, Wild Birds Unlimited, Michael Joseph's, Glen Liquors, Jimmy's Southside Tavern and the Gardener's Center at a varying schedule.

Ticket sales also gives people from town a chance to talk with Post 53 members to learn more about the services they provide, get blood pressure checked and pick up information.

Founded in 1970, Post 53 provides emergency medical services to the Darien community, using Darien High School students and adult volunteers.
