Harvest Dinner with the Pilgrims: at Plimoth Plantation today at 5:30pm. Take a savory journey into the past. An evening of entertainment and hospitality awaits you as you sit down to a “groaning board” filled with the finest food that this season of plenty has to offer. Your Pilgrim hosts – residents of 1627 Plimoth – will spice up your dinner conversation with tales of England – old and new. Discover the table manners and recipes that traveled across the Atlantic with the Pilgrims, and find out about what happened at the famous harvest celebration of 1621. During dinner, you will be entertained with centuries-old psalms and songs and perhaps you will be convinced to join in singing a round or two. Sittings are at 5:30pm. There are also other dates throughout November. For more information, call or visit www.plimoth.org (Actually, any Saturday or Sunday or weekday a visit to Plimoth Plantation is a great fun event and learning experience, especially in November! Note: Plimoth Plantation and the Mayflower II is open through the weekend after Thanksgiving)
