How about a “Harvest Dinner with the Pilgrims” today at 5:30? 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. Get details by clicking HERE
