A crabby time in Fair Play

This year’s 16th annual Crab Banquets will be held at Perry Creek Winery on Saturdays, Jan. 11 and 18, and at the Skinner Winery on Saturdays, Jan. 25 and Feb. 1.

Diners will be greeted at the door and then escorted to a table by local fire department personnel. The table is beautifully decorated with linen tablecloths and china plates. Wonderful music is playing. Soon, a wine steward and table servers show up to attend to every need.

This is just the beginning of an elegant six-course dinner that includes complimentary wine, fresh crab with drawn butter and arguably the best clam chowder you have ever eaten.

Want more?

How about a real party atmosphere with a live band and people dancing to every song?

And that’s not all folks.

There are exciting auctions and raffle prizes offered throughout the evening. And you enjoy it all even more, knowing that the proceeds from everything will be going to the Pioneer Volunteer Firefighter’s Association (PVFA) for the support of the Pioneer Fire District and a small portion going to the local schools.

No need to get dressed up for this event. In fact, because the PVA Crab Banquets are served in the ambiance of the chilly barrel rooms of the Skinner and Perry Creek wineries, the evening’s attire is your most comfortable dancing shoes and layers of warm clothing that you shed as you start dancing.

Additional information and the option for buying tickets for the event are available by calling 530-306-4852 or at pioneervolunteerfire.org/crab-banquet.

Both wineries are located in Fair Play.
