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.glenfoerd.org or call 215–632–5330. ••
