Darien EMS-Post 53 is selling advance admission tickets for its annual Memorial Day Food Fair at select locations around town until Monday, May 26.

"Last year, we found that many people appreciated having the opportunity to get their tickets ahead of time so they could get to the fun as quickly as possible after the parade," said Gayle Close, co-chairman of ticket sales for the fair. "This year, once again, we've worked with the town and many generous local retailers who have kindly allowed us to set up ticket sales outside their stores. The support has been tremendous. You'll see our Post 53 volunteers all over town in the next few weeks. We want to give a big thank you to our retail and sports partners for their support."

Tickets are $5 and will be sold at a varying schedule by Post 53 members at Bling, Darien Doughnut, Darien Little League, Darien Sport Shop, Dunkin' Donuts, Espresso Neat, Fabricare Cleaners, Glen Liquors, Heights Pizza, Jake's Place, Leary's Liquor Cabinet, Nielsen's Florist & Garden Shop, Palmer's Market, Ring's End, Stefanou Salon, Stop & Shop Good Wives Shopping Center, Stop & Shop Noroton Heights Shopping Center, Sugar Bowl, Swizzles Frozen Yogurt, Tengda Asian Bistro Darien, The Gardeners Center and Florist, Uncle's Deli, Vavala's Deli and Wild Birds Unlimited.
