North Salem High School to host “Salem Fest” this weekend


North Salem High School, in partnership with the North Salem Athletic Booster Club, will host Salem Fest this weekend at the Middle/High School campus. Salem Fest marks the culmination of the spring sports season for North Salem’s varsity student athletes. Before the start of each game, North Salem’s senior athletes will be recognized.

Festivities will kick off Saturday, May 6 with a dedication ceremony at the varsity baseball field at 2:45 p.m. The field is being named “Outhouse Field” in honor of Outhouse family members Purdy, Drew and Wayne, who, over several decades, made significant contributions to youth sports in North Salem. The first pitch will take place at 3:00 p.m., as the Tigers take on Rye Neck High School.
