Chicken Broil THIS Thursday
The 64th Manchester Chicken Broil is happening this Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 4pm to 8pm. Meals are $10 if purchased at the Broil but tickets can be purchased $9 still through Wednesday at Comerica Bank, Frank’s Place Restaurant, Gistinger & Gistinger Law Office, Keith’s Barber Shop, Manchester Market, Manchester Pharmacy, Manchester Village Offices, Marti’s Salon, Pyramid Office Supply, Sutton Agency, Old National Bank, Village Tap, River Raisin Antiques and Mercantile, Ash Auto, Fredonia Grocery, Linda’s Diner, Manchester Feed & Supply, Manchester True Value Hardware, Wacker’s BP, Hungry Wolf Restaurant, United Producers Bridgewater Depot, and Chelsea Lumber Co./Bridgewater. There will again be a drive-through carryout line for the Chicken Broil. The entrance is on Duncan St. at Hibbard St., with service on Wolverine St. next to Alumni Field. This year they have added a second carry-out production line to speed up the take-out and drive-thru lines.
This year WLEN-FM 103.9 from Adrian will be broadcasting live from Alumni Field from 3-5 PM during the Chicken Broil. And there are reports that PBS Under the Radar show will be coming to the Chicken Broil this year! It’s likely at least someone you know will end up on TV, and maybe it will be you!
For the first time ever, there will be a gazebo concert on the night of the Manchester Chicken Broil! This Thursday, at 7:30 pm, bring your Chicken Broil dinner (or walk it off after eating at Alumni Field) to Wurster Park on Main Street and enjoy the old-time fiddle and banjo music of the Corn Potato String Band Duo.
