Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

The 48th Orton Park Festival

Postby madmax » Sun Jul 28, 2013 7:24 pm

It is with great pride that the Marquette Neighborhood Association (MNA) announces the 48th edition of the Orton Park Festival. We move into the park on August 22nd for four days of superb entertainment for the whole family. Thursday is Family Night featuring an earlier start for Cycropia Aerial Dance's new show "Circus Quercus"and snacks and kids activities before that.

Friday evening the main stage and dance floor will have been gently moved into position and we have two great bands , The California Honeydrops and Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound, getting the patrons dancing before Cycropia's encore show at 8:30.

The music on Saturday and Sunday is exceptional and check out the schedule below and the link below will take you to the MNA website for detailed information. Of course there will be great food and drink and the Jazz Brunch on Sunday morning.

The complete event details can be found at the attached link.

Is it true that MNA is considering cutting down two Orton Park trees (tree #s 50 & 51) to make room for the Jazz Tent? So that the proceeds can pay for a sculpture of a tree?

Is it also true that TR Loon will be juggling his self righteousness, his need for attention and his love of purple?

Is it also true attendees will all be arrested for singing along with the bands if they don't have a permit?

Is it also true there will be a gin & tonic tent?
