Ox Roast In Mesopotamia

Forget about a pound of flesh. This weekend alone, the Mesopotamia Volunteer Firemen’s Association expects to sell nearly three tons of meat — 5,700 pounds to be exact — at their 39th annual ox roast. It’s an enormous undertaking, as volunteers slow-roast slabs of ox weighing nine to 35 pounds each, all destined to become part of the fire department’s famous roast beef sandwiches. But what about the carbs, you ask? Check out pancake breakfast, which happens from 7 to 11 a.m. tomorrow and Sunday. “The proceeds help us buy fire trucks and send people to training. Taxpayers appreciate that, so they come down,” says FVA president Jamie Loza. But even out-of-towners can find plenty to appreciate in this quaint little village, including a major flea market featuring more than 180 antique and art dealers. Today’s hours are 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. Parking and admission are free; the food and drink will cost you. Find out more on the website.
