This is one of my favorite events to go to in the Quincy area. I bring my blanket and lawn chairs and just enjoy the day on the river drinking wine and enjoying time with friends. Food will be provided by The Abbey, but you may bring your own food as well (no coolers or alcohol though). There will also be entertainment throughout the day on the mainstage. I'll see ya there!
