Rockwell Park Festival 08/17/2013

Saturday the 17th will mark the second year that the West End Association will host our Rockwell Park Summer Festival. This is a great chance for people to come out and support our community. The festival will be located in Rockwell Park which is located on Jacob Street in Bristol, Connecticut. Entrance to the festival is free. It starts at ten in the morning and ends at six PM. There are going to be twenty bands playing on two stages (main stage and the Gazebo) throughout the course of the day, providing continuous entertainment from a variety of different genres, from country to alternative. There will be an act for every age group and musical taste. Imagine Nation will be supplying activities for the kids. There will be fifteen food vendors and a ton of craft vendors. For the gearheads there will be a car show that starts promptly at noon. Throughout the day, Bare Bones will be hosting an art show that will feature many local artists and even some live art presentations. There will be volleyball, basketball and skateboard competitions. The latter of which will take place at Rockwell Park's beautiful skate park. A 42 inch TV that was generously donated by Mr. Tim Bobroske will be raffled at five PM. The winner must be present to claim their prize. Be sure to check out Nutmeg Television, also. They will be taking video of the entire event. These are just some of the activities that are planned for the event. Be sure to come by and say, "Hi!" I should be there all day long.
