We can have 2 bands as long as they stop playing by 11 pm.
We have the Hot Rods & Happy Hour to DJ on Friday, and all day Saturday including Saturday night.
They will have more speakers with WiFi in more areas of the parking lot so everyone can hear better. They will have 4 judges this year. They’ve revamped their trailer with AC etc
Stage and Lights - no commitment yet, but we can use the same company we used last year for $900
Jim is to check on another stage company.
The Ladder truck from the local Fire Dept was a big hit last year, the Flag could be seen by traffic and helped bring foot traffic to our event.
