For finger lickin’, The Manchester Chicken Broil is nothing short of historic. Originally established in 1954 “to give the women the night off from cooking and let the men prepare the meal,” recounts event Co-Chairman Michael Tindall, the broil now serves 10,000 dinners in 4 hours. The staff is comprised of volunteers, and dinner proceeds are fed back into the community for civic project funding. Community members and visitors are invited to join the tradition, enjoy the day outdoors and chow down on a choice chicken dinner.
