Taste of Pelham set for April 19

PELHAM – The Pelham Library Guild’s fifth annual Taste of Pelham has been set for Thursday, April 19, from 6-8 p.m. at the Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena.

The event will offer food and drink samples from local restaurants, caterers and beverage providers in the area. A total of 27 vendors from Shelby County and abroad will showcase two to three of their signature dishes.

The annual event usually draws hundreds of people to the Pelham Civic Complex.

The city’s new library is expected to be completed sometime in March.
