The back story: BLOWOUT....in the beginning....it was a dark and stormy night in 1977, a voice echoed out of the darkness, from the heart of Padanaram in South Dartmouth, the round table at the Whale's Tale..."Lets have a party!" Peter Travers declared, "we'll call it...the BLOWOUT!" and so a tradition was born. About 150 friends gathered that summer of 1977 and it became an annual event not-to-be-missed...more people came every year, and it grew...babies were born, and it grew...babies grew and brought their families...please join us for a good cause and fun for all ages. We raised thousands of dollars throughout the years for individuals, families and organizations.
