Whether you celebrate Lent (the season of penance and prayer before Easter) or not, tis the season for Fish Fry’s!
What is a fish fry, you ask?
As defined on Wikipedia, “Fish fries are very common in the Midwestern and northeastern regions of the United States. This is especially true for predominantly Roman Catholic communities on Fridays during Lent, when regulations call for abstinence from most meat products.”
There’s a great article in the Frederick News Post, from last week titled, “You Don’t Have to Be Catholic To Enjoy Lenten Fish Frys”. The author even reviews one that she enjoyed!
Local Fish Fry’s During This Season of Lent
Here in Frederick County, we have several Fish Fry’s offered!
I’ve listed them below in no particular order. Click on the highlighted link for more information!
