This is one of Dorchester's biggest weekends of the year. The DHS alumni basketball tournament, paired with the Dorchester Community Foundation's spring steak and hamburger feed, means the village will be busting with lively activity.
The weather forecast couldn't be better. High temperatures will range from 70 to 75 all weekend with plenty of sun.
Here are this weekend's key activities in Dorchester:
- The annual DHS Alumni Basketball Tournament is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. A tradition that started in March 1995, the tournament is still going strong. We've heard that at least eight or nine teams will be competing on the hardwood this year -- down a bit from previous years, but still enough to ensure some fierce competition and friendly rivalries. Games start tonight (Friday) at 6 p.m. and will run until the championship at mid-afternoon on Sunday.
- The annual Dorchester Community Foundation's Spring Steak and Hamburger Feed will be held at the Dorchester Community Hall and Legion Hall Saturday night from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. Diners can choose a 12 oz. rib eye, along with salad, potato or chips, bread, drink and dessert -- all for $17. Or choose the hamburger meal for $9, which includes all the aforementioned side dishes. This event has been one of the most popular in Dorchester for the past six years. Proceeds from the feed will go to benefit Tabor Hall projects, as well as projects at the Dorchester American Legion Hall.
- We've heard that City Slickers will be running food and drink specials all weekend long, just as Joe's Place and Ben's Iron Grill did in previous years. The weekend will be a perfect opportunity for out-of-towners to see all the construction and progress that has been made recently inside their favorite pub.
