"a funky blog about life in downtown Centreville, the capital of Queen Anne's County on Maryland's Eastern Shore"
My name’s Mary McCarthy, and I am going to be your new Centrevillain blogger! I live in a Victorian house in lovely historic downtown Centreville, and I have four kids in four different local schools, so I am often out and about, and ready to report the fun goings-on, adventures you can share with your family, or exciting news about what’s goin on in Cville!
This week, the BIG THING coming up is the Delmarva Chicken Festival. There’s a great story about this famous Chickenfest in this month’s issue of What’s Up Eastern Shore (where I used to work as Managing Editor). My pal, fellow writer and musician extraordinaire Rik Ferrell did a great job of covering the event- so if you have a magazine lying around, check it out!
The DELMARVA CHICKEN FESTIVAL is going to be held June 19 and 20 at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park right here in Centreville! This year marks the 60th anniversary of the festival, but this year is the first time it’s being held in Queen Anne’s County. Great news for the local poultry industry and our economy. You name the style of chicken, and you’ll see it at the festival; I’m sure you’ll be able to smell the cooking chicken from miles around! It’s making me hungry just writing about it.
