End the weekend relaxing to the sounds of: Randy Stephens (classic rock, blues, jazz), Jack’d Up (rock, pop, dance) and the finale with Dr. Dave Band (country rock, bluegrass). Check back as the event approaches for the current and updated Performance Schedule.
The final ‘seasoning’ is shopping a marketplace of arts and crafts (e.g., painting, mixed-media, glass), gourmet food items and specialty products. Enjoy during the breaks between band performances!
The Humane Society will have their “Big Mac” mobile adoption center onsite Saturday May 22nd. Please take a few moments to stop by and say “hi” to the dedicated staff. Meet their extended family of ‘friends’ awaiting adoption and perhaps find yourself a new life companion while showing your appreciation and support to a wonderful, caring organization that makes a difference in our communities.
There you have it. What is there not to love!!! Treat yourself to fun and relaxation. We will lay the feast – do come enjoy!
