Darien EMS-Post 53 will hold its annual Memorial Day Food Fair at Tilley Park Pond on May 29 following the Memorial Day parade, raising money to support training, provide supplies for patient care, provide hands-only CPR classes and maintain ambulances.  The fair, which begins immediately after the parade, continues until 2 p.m. and features fun for the entire community.

Admission tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the gate as well as outside select retail and non-retail locations around town prior to Memorial Day.

As always, the fair will include a varied food selection.  Post members will be hard at work grilling hamburgers and bratwurst, and serving pulled pork, seafood salads, delicious desserts and more.  Suppliers include Palmer’s Market, Michael Joseph’s, Fisherman’s Net, The Goose, and Smoky Joe’s. The Darien Community Band will play at noon.
