The tradition continues Saturday as Cutchogue Fire Department is set to host the 59th Annual Chicken Barbecue fundraiser at the firehouse grounds.
The event — dubbed by the fire department as likely the largest chicken barbecue event on Long Island — will welcome thousands, organizers said. The members of United Fire Company No. 1 and the Cutchogue Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary have hosted this annual fundraising event each year.
The barbecue will be held from 4 p.m to 10 p.m. at the firehouse on New Suffolk Road. For additional information or to purchase the limited tickets still available, click here or call (631) 734-6907.
