Heritage Area, Kennard Alumni team to host bull, oyster roast
CENTREVILLE — Experience Eastern Shore tradition at a bull and oyster roast from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13, at the Kennard High School Cultural Heritage Center, 410 Little Kidwell Avenue in Centreville.

Oysters on the half shell from Harris’ and a local dessert bar will also be available.
Tickets are $40 for adults, $25 for children 6-12 and can be purchased online.
