1st Annual Fort Father’s Day Summerfest

The Fort

This event is happening concurrently with the upcoming Maryland/Delaware State H.O.G. Rally this week in Deep Creek Lake!

Kick off the summer of 2012 at Deep Creek Lake with outdoor bands, great food and the Family Olympics at the Fort in McHenry Maryland. Look for the full schedule of events online at www.DCLFUN.com or stop by any of the businesses in the Fort, McHenry Maryland 21541 along Route 219.

Join Smileys, Black Bear Tavern and Pine Lodge Steakhouse where a portion of the proceeds for the four day event will be donated to the Garrett County Community School Support Fund. This new fund administered by the Community Foundation will be available for classroom needs beginning in the next school year. Teachers may apply for the funds and any teacher volunteering or participating in the Summerfest event will have preferred priority for their funding needs.

The Fort Father’s Day Summerfest will begin at Noon Thursday with the first annual Family Olympics where two person teams can compete for over $1000 in prize money by posting the combined best score for mini golf, highest score at bowling and fastest time on the go cart tracks.

  1. Jay,

    I suppose you’re out there now enjoying it, I hope so anyway – hopefully it’s not too hot where you’re at to have a good time.

  2. We got back on Monday so we have been home for less than a week. It was perfect weather! Sunshine with a cool breeze flowing through the mountains of western Maryland. Couldn’t ask for better weather during the 2012 Maryland/Delaware State HOG Rally. The fantastic weather must have been the inspiration for a hundred onsite registrations which caught us by surprise.
