Hookers Ball is worth coming to for the Heads or Tails coin toss game alone. It’s hilarious.

Hookers Ball XXII was one for the record books, our most successful ever. The big, white tent was at a different venue, the Harwich Community Center, but the ball’s purpose was the same: to celebrate the local, commercial fishing industry with the wider community and help protect the fleet’s future. The night was full of old friends and new faces, and more than a few fishing families. With direct sales and neighborly connections, ‘know your fisherman’ is alive and well as one captain kept being waved over to the fish fry to explain his sea clam operation.
