Glen Fo­erd regatta set for June 17

Get a wiggle on and vis­it Glen Fo­erd’s Roar­ing ’20s Regatta on Tues­day, June 17, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Glen Fo­erd on the Delaware, 5001 Grant Ave.

The Ra­cing Fleet of the Delaware River Yacht Club will sail the river as vis­it­ors dine river­side en­joy­ing the speak­easy-style mu­sic of the 1920s. 

Early birds can wager on the yacht race, while The Gin Ca­nar­ies set the mood with live mu­sic. Vis­it­ors are in­vited to dress the part by “put­tin’ on the ritz” in ’20s style.

The cost is $40 per per­son, which does not in­clude the cash bar. Din­ner and dan­cing will be held in the River­side Pa­vil­ion, so the event will be rain or shine. Re­ser­va­tions should be made by June 12. Vis­it www.glen­ or call 215-632-5330. ••
