NOTES ON THE 2015 SUMMERFEST:
This year, for the first time enjoying the spectacular new pavilions and stage at School Street Park, audiences enjoyed all kinds of great music (below), we handed out several hundred FREE giveaways (courtesy of the good folks at Berkshire Bank), and LOTS of free helium balloons to the kids! Hundreds of folks took a chance to become winners in our weekly and Grand Prize Raffle drawings, with many stopping by just to say "Hi"!
(...or collect a new "doodle"! :-)
Of course our friends in the Agawam Rotary Club once again served up hundreds of hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, onion rings and cold drinks -- and endless buckets of freshly-popped popcorn! And NEW this year, Meatball subs, heroes and grinders!!
We were glad to see the Veteran's Association join us again this year, providing FREE face-painting for the kids, and educating folks on their continuing efforts in support of our veterans.

National Night Out had a bumper crop of participants and attendees, and by all accounts was terrific fun, and a terrific success!
So... many thanks to all who attended, and a special thanks to Chris Sparks and the Agawam Park and Rec Department, the custodial staff of Phelps School, and everyone who had a hand in bringing the spectacular School Street Park (and brand new Water Spray park) to Agawam!!!
-- SEE YOU NEXT SUMMER! --
