October 24th, 2012 Press Release!

Chester Merchants Press Release

It's Hallowe'en weekend here in Chester. While the actual "trick or treat" affair doesn't get underway until the 31st, those of us who enjoy an adult beverage (or ten) like to get a jump on such things here in the Hamlet.

In fact some started as early as last weekend. The annual Harvest Fest took place at Lordly Park last Sunday. Batman, Superman, Cinderella and more were all in attendance. Lots of games and entertainment for the short ones and it was PACKED! Even "Lichen Man" was there to entertain with his saw.

Today, Wednesday, Shannon at the Green Grocer on Queen Street is having an up to 50% off sale. This sale is one day only and runs until 8 pm tonight.

Tomorrow night @ 7:30pm the Chester Playhouse is continuing their Judi Dench film series with "The Shipping News."
In upcoming Playhouse news Chester's own Old Man Luedecke is on stage next Thursday, November 1st @ 8pm. Get a ticket now because it will be a sold out performance.

On Saturday why not stop in at Kiwi for lunch. A delightful little café in the theatre district on Pleasant Street. It's "truly delicious."

Eggs bennie, fishcakes, homemade baked beans, chowder, fish and chips, beef and seafood dishes all await you on the waterfront. Throughout this week they are having a 10oz strip loin special. Get down there, park yourself on the deck, and enjoy the last rays of summer and the autumn colours.
