The menu varies not only from year to year, but from hour to hour. One will definitely find themselves choosing from venison, turkey and catfish, but there might also be squirrel, elk, buffalo, rabbit, alligator, duck and goose. There will be hundreds of items between the live and silent auction, and choice beverages will also be available.
It’s time for the annual Harpers Ferry Fire Department Wild Game Feed, and this year marks the 25th anniversary of the anticipated event.
According to Harpers Ferry Fire Chief Dave Cota, the Wild Game Feed started in 1994 when Robert Vavra brought up the idea of a game feed which had been held as a successful fundraiser in Swisher, where he was from. The fire department decided to give it a try and held the event at the local bar which Vavra owned.
