62nd Annual Occidental Volunteer Fire Department Barbecue
The summer is here and it is time for Occidental’s annual firefighters’ chicken barbeque. This year’s event is the 62nd annual barbeque and it is always a great party! It will be held under the redwoods at the Union Hotel Grove on Bohemian Highway, ¼ mile north of downtown Occidental. The admission is free. There will be live music for listening and dancing from Third Rail and Paulie’s Garage. There will also be beer, salami throw, raffle, door prizes, wine, barbequed oysters, kids games, bounce house, and desserts. Barbequed chicken and tri-tip dinners are available for purchase. This year, by popular request, they will be offering “dinners to go” if you don’t have time to stay. Pre-sale tickets are available at Occidental Hardware store or call the fire station at 874-3800. All proceeds benefit the Occidental Volunteer Firefighters Association and donations are always welcome.
