We are excited to once again be a sponsor of the SOUTH SHORE CELEBRATION on October 6 from 10am to 4:30pm at the Marshfield Fairgrounds! Last year’s inaugural event was a huge success and we look forward to another amazing year of  celebrating the fall harvest, local foods and sustainable living. With over 75 food and green vendors, this is a MUST attend event for anyone interested in sustainable and green living on the South Shore.

Here are a few things you can look forward to experiencing at this year’s event:

Seafood Throwdown

Two local chefs compete in a cooking competition inspired by local seafood.   Each participant brings only their favorite cooking vessels/utensils,  presentation plates and three of their favorite ingredients.  Once there, they  discover the secret seafood ingredient, given $25 and 15 minutes to use the  farmers market as their pantry, and then an hour to prepare, cook and plate  their dish for three judges.


Live Music & Entertainment

We are thrilled to announce that local Boston band Melodeego will be our top-billed entertainment for this day-long fest.   Their sound combines rock, soul, R & B and occasional hip-hop.  The band consists of three guys committed to making music and providing a voice to this generation of young people.  Inspired to do something about our reliance on fossil fuels after the massive BP oil spill, they created a bicycle-powered sound  system which is part of their show.    They are not just singing  about change, but living it! Check them out at www.melodeego.com.


 
Kids Corner & Activties
 
Our children’s tent this year will include activities provided by the Hanson Children’s Museum.  We were going to make corn husk dolls, decorate pumpkins, make bug bandanas, and make our own play dough.   A Cranberry Bog workshop will be fun and informative!

 
Electronics Recycle Station
We are pleased to announce that METECH Recycling has signed up for a second year with South Shore Celebration!   Bring all your obsolete dinosaur relics and just plain unwanted electronics.   Metech guarantees that all electronics they recycle are disposed of in an environmentally safe fashion.  They  will accept pretty much anything with a plug or a power source. All data sensitive material, like hard drives, will be shred at their facility. All other material, like the plastic, metal, glass, etc., will be dismantled from the electronics, separated by type, and sent off to various  manufacturers to be reused.  There will be some fees involved with recycling.
