The 20th Annual Turkey Shoot put on by the Nesbitt Volunteer Fire Department will also be the last. The event will begin Saturday, October 31 at 10 a.m. at the Nesbitt Volunteer Fire Department District 3. The shoot will go on rain, or shine. The department will put up awnings to protect guests from the elements.
No actual turkeys will be harmed in the course of the family-friendly event. Shooters will aim at targets for the chance to win one of 50, 10-12 pound frozen turkeys from a local vendor. Each round you enter will cost $6.
Children are also welcome to take part in the turkey shoot for free. They will have the chance to win a special Nesbitt Volunteer Fire Department medal.
A fish dinner will run from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. for $10 a plate. There will also be a variety of vendors inside the fire station for guests to indulge in.
With just a $10 donation, guests will also be in the drawing for a rifle.
Rain is highly likely for the turkey shoot Saturday morning, so it's great the department is taking the initiative to keep guests dry. Temperatures will be a bit on the cooler side, not budging too far out of the upper 60s during the late morning hours, so it will be a good idea to grab that jacket before heading to the event.
