The "people's choice" award for the best chowder at the Newburyport ChowderFest held Saturday afternoon, October 9th, was the Ipswich Clambake restaurant of Ipswich. Close to 600 people attended the event, which was a fundraiser for the Custom House Maritime Museum. Ten local restaurants offered samples of their chowder.
