Dance to the sounds of Cadillac Envy, who will be rocking up on a flatbed truck provided by Greene’s Service Station at the corner of South Main Street and Route 9. Cadillac Envy is a young, exciting, retro-influenced band with roots in 1950s rockabilly, early rock ‘n’ roll, and rhythm and blues.
Be sure to come early to register for the annual pie eating contest, sponsored by the Southern Vermont Deerfield Valley Chamber of Commerce. Thirty lucky contestants can sign up on-site at the block party, with the pie eating contest taking place at around 6 pm during a band break.
The Blueberry Block Party will also host the grand prize drawing for the Find Waldo Local in Wilmington event.
Meanwhile there will be local food vendors selling everything from lobster rolls to cotton candy, with blueberry treats galore. Visit local craft vendors along South Main Street. Hula hooping by Serenity Circles and face painting take place on the Pettee Memorial Library lawn throughout.
The Blueberry Block Party is organized by volunteers as part of Wilmington Works and thanks to partial funding from the town of Wilmington.
