Every year, The Ford members look forward to our Homecoming celebration. It’s a weeklong ode to our property, its history, and the people who live and play at The Ford. Filled with food, friends, and festivities, the events are a highlight of the year for our members and staff alike. This year’s events included tournaments, trivia, and the not-to-be-missed Homecoming Gala. Below, get a glimpse of the Homecoming 2021 celebration at The Ford.
If there’s one thing our members love, it’s good ol’ fashioned friendly competition. Throughout Homecoming week, we hosted competitions for members of all ages. From pickleball to the annual homecoming tournament to blackjack and craps, members got to challenge themselves and each other in the spirit of friendly competition all week long.
The Ford is beloved by members of all ages, and we wanted to show our appreciation for even the youngest crowd throughout the week. We hosted a variety of kids-only and family-friendly events and activities to engage and delight. These included a watercolor class, a kids’ night hike, an extraordinary fireworks show, and the crowd-favorite ferris wheel and the spectacular views from its top.
The Annual Oyster Roast
On Friday night, we celebrated a treasured Ford tradition of seeing old friends and meeting new ones at the Oyster House during our Homecoming Oyster Roast. Members enjoyed freshly roasted oysters, boiled shrimp, small bites, and cocktails among great company.
Viva La Ford! – Homecoming Gala
Arguably the highlight of the week for most of our members, our Homecoming Gala was a night of extravagance—not soon to be forgotten. Members arrived dressed to the nines, enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, played casino games, danced and socialized, and ended the night with a bang with a fireworks show.
