Music accompanies the event from the gazebo.

Free horse-drawn wagon rides are provided and there is a chainsaw carving demonstration on-going all day.

The Chowdah Cook-off features local restaurants competing for the titles of “best chowdah” and is enormously popular, attracting hundreds of hungry tasters.  Several Bethel area non-profits also have events that day in locations around the region.
