If you’re thinking about staying at the newly-opened Featherstone Inn, check out these fun and unique things to do this weekend while visiting North Lower Bayheightsville:
Corn Snake Round-up: At the end of every July, town residents make the conscious decision to release live corn snakes into town, and watch as members of the city council compete to see who can catch the most without being bitten. $10 admission, kids get in free if they bring a live snake.
Shore Players Present Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale: Mrs. Weston and her league of retired semi-pros conjure up Shakespeare’s dark fair tale as never before, complete with magic, love and wild beasts. Seriously. A bear chases one of the characters off stage. We spent hours on the costume so please check it out. $10 adults, $6 seniors, $20 hipsters.
6th Annual 12-inch Italian Hoagie Eating Contest: Contestants face off to see who can eat the most 12-inch hoagies within the 10 minute time-frame. 2013 winner Jason Tallens returns to defend his controversial title, which he secured when 3-time champion Barry Kobayashi was disqualified after being caught trying to avoid eating the capicola. Winner receives $5,000 and a week of free medical treatment, courtesy of Shore Hospital. Free.
Check back every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the summer as It’s a Shore Thing follows the adventures of the Featherstone family as they run the family bed and breakfast in out-of-the-way North Lower Bayheightsville.
