Support Haldimand……….Hard to believe that the summer is nearing the end when I am sure that most would agree that it really has not arrived yet. That being said, there have been some amazing festivals, fairs and parades this year and without the commitment of the many volunteers, these events would never happen or be able to continue.
Saturday August 30th in Hagersville, you have the opportunity to bring your lawn chair, bring your blankets, and bring your families to a great new event! The local Chamber of Commerce and volunteers have put together an event that you could only capture in a larger community. Hagersville Rocks will not disappoint as you embrace some of the local talent such as Ally Howatt and Remedy, a Canadian great Suzie McNeil, who is for the most part performing in Las Vegas now, and 20 Ride will blow you all away! Not only do they sound just like the actual Zac Brown Band, they look just like them as well. Also performing are, Chase Rice, whose album was just released, and is number 2 on the US charts today and rounding out the event with platinum artist Sara Evans.
Over the years, many people have said to me “why can’t we do more in our own backyard?”, “why is it that the big cities continuously pull it off”? This is our chance to help support Hagersville Rocks, help support Haldimand, and support the numerous volunteers who want to continue offering festivals of this kind in the future. Invite your friends, bring your kids, oh, and if you need to leave the event and want to come back, YOU CAN, at the discretion of security for obvious reasons.
Do not miss the event that will close out the summer. Don’t have tickets? You can get them online at www.hagersvillerocks.com or at some participating outlets like Tim’s Tires and Heaslip Ford in Hagersville, and some local Hald-Nor Credit Unions.
Each day this week I will be drawing backstage meet and greet passes for the various artists. Anyone who would like to purchase VIP tickets can contact my office at 905-318-5932 ext 6102 and we will enter your name for a chance to win. Please mention the Silo when contacting. Good luck and I am looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Hagersville Rocks on Saturday starting at 2 pm, at the Grant Kett Memorial Park, 36 Sherring St S, Hagersville, Ontario. For the Silo, Haldimand Mayor Ken Hewitt
