FAIRFIELD — It’s not too late to score tickets for the annual Prime Rib in the Park dinner, scheduled Saturday in downtown Fairfield.
The dinner, which is nearly sold out, features all the fixings, dessert, wine tapped from a barrel and, or course, prime rib right off the grill. Auctions and live entertainment will round out the festivities.
Prime Rib in the Park begins at 5 p.m. at McNaughton Park on Great Jones Street, across the street from Bank of American and adjacent to the Daily Republic. Dinner is served at 6:30 p.m.
The event is a joint endeavor by the Fairfield Host Lions Club and the Fairfield Community Services Foundation to benefit the city’s Fun on the Run after-school mobile recreation programs for children.
This is the event’s ninth year. To date, it has raised nearly $200,000 to benefit Fun on the Run.
For tickets, call 427-6927.
