For those new to Basin Harbor there is also the Inside Scoop. This is a brief layout of various traditions and goings on that those veteran guests already know about, but our newbies may not have heard of yet!
Just a reminder that we are not having our usual Dock Dinner tomorrow evening. Instead we have the fantastic BBQ Bonanza happening over by the Red Mill from 4-8pm! This is sure to be an event to please everyone. There will be a delicious assortment of BBQ’d items for your tasting pleasure. There will be lawn games and fun activities for all ages. Feeling competitive? Enter the pie-eating contest or try your hand on the mechanical bull! Add in the Live local music and it’s the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon!
There are some great local events today! Right in town the Vergennes Day festival is under way. Make sure to stop by and check out all of the family fun and activities! There will be entertainment and games in the park. Along with various other family fun activities! Just down the lake from our Harbor there is more excitement…the Diamond Island Regatta sets sail from Town Bay Road at 11am! This great event is sponsored by the Royal Savage Yacht Club and Point Bay Marina, and benefits our very own Lake Champlain Maritime Museum. Stop by the Concierge desk to ask for directions or more information.
