The Brandywine River Museum Presents “Tip-A-Canoe And Barbecue Too,” A Boating And BBQ Adventure, Saturday, July 14
Imagine spending a warm summer’s afternoon enjoying the natural beauty of a calm, tranquil river while quietly canoeing along its open waterways.
Then afterwards, visualize partying the night away by chowing down on tasty barbecue and dancing to the beat of rocking live music.
The day starts off in Chadds Ford. Guests get bussed to a launch site in West Chester, where they can relax and get in touch with nature as they canoe through babbling streams.
At 5 p.m., the barbeque begins, followed by dancing and live music by The Bullbuckers.
Interested? Canoes must be reserved by July 10. Tickets must be purchased in advance and include canoe rental, BBQ, cold beverages, beer, wine and live music.
Proceeds go towards the Young Friends of the Brandywine Conservancy, a membership group and volunteer committee of young adults dedicated to furthering the goals of the Brandywine Conservancy.
Call (610) 88-8315 for tickets, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
