Feast for the Fest … and its animals

Dec 23, 2013
Charlie the Pig, standing at the feet of Dick Royer, owner of Zabby's Animal Farm, is among the beneficiaries of the Rockland Congregational Church’s Renaissance Feast.

Rockland — Rockland Congregational Church’s annual Boar's Head and Yule Log Festival will not take place this year (it will be back in January 2015) but the gala Renaissance Feast is on for Friday, Jan. 4, in the lower level Fellowship Hall beginning 6:30 p.m. Reservations are required; tickets are a reduced price of $15, available by calling the church at 594-8656.

The King and Queen of the Boar's Head pageant will preside over the Renaissance Feast, and various cast members from the musical production will sing and entertain. The evening also will feature a performance by the Timbrel bell choir of the church.

One of the most important members of the cast, Charlie the Pot Belly Pig, will add his energies to the festivities. In fact, the mission of the Feast is to contribute net proceeds toward the support of Charlie and all the other animals at Zabby's Farm this winter, as they have taken such an active role in the Boar's Head Festival from the very beginning.

The Feast will feature roasted turkey legs, assorted roasted vegetables, assorted cheeses and fruit, hot cider and spiced wine and various “sweet meats” (desserts).
