Fun, Food, Music, Memories, and More – All at Saline’s Summerfest 2015, August 7-8

(Saline, MI; July 20, 2015) – This summer, fun-seeking families and individuals will enjoy a sweeping array of activities, attractions, and amusements in one super hometown celebration – Saline’s Summerfest 2015 – to happen Friday and Saturday, August 7-8, on the streets of downtown Saline.

Summerfest builds on the traditional festivities of Saline’s “Picnic in the Park,” which was held each summer for nearly two decades in the city’s Mill Pond Park along the banks of the Saline River. In 2006, Picnic in the Park became part of a new, bigger event, called Saline’s Summerfest, and moved to downtown Saline for the first time.

By all accounts, Saline’s Summerfest events of the past nine years have been smash hits, drawing large and enthusiastic crowds to the city’s quaint and inviting downtown. This August the event will be held downtown for the tenth consecutive year, and it promises to deliver even more fun, food, music, and memories for those who join in.

Entertainment at Saline’s Summerfest 2015 will again include musical and dance performances practically all through Friday evening and Saturday from morning to night.

Adults can test Lady Luck in the Saline Rotary Club’s Friday Night Casino and Saturday evening’s Blackjack Challenge. The athletic-minded will have a 5K run/walk, 3 on 3 basketball, and a volleyball tournament to choose from. For family fun there will be a tricycle race, a youth fishing contest, and children’s games and activities.

Another Summerfest highlight: a juried art and craft fair sponsored by the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce. There will be a teen block party on Saturday night. And “Saline Street Machines” will put 125++ classic cars on proud display.

As in past years, the Saline Area Historical Society will conduct tours by trolley car of many of Saline’s oldest and most notable buildings and historical areas from 12 noon to 4 pm on Saturday. The tours will visit the site of Saline’s proposed new Salt Springs Park.

On Saturday from noon to 6:00 pm, the Saline Area Fire Department will be cooking up a storm, offering full chicken dinners, with all the fixin’s, for the hungry crowds. Summerfest attendees can also snack on burgers, pizza, ice cream, soft drinks, bottled water, and more.

There will be a beer and wine tent on Friday from 5 pm to 11 pm, and on Saturday from 12 noon to 11 pm. Craft brews from Saline’s new Salt Springs Brewery will be on tap.

Also during Saline’s Summerfest 2015, attendees can browse the downtown stores and check out the city’s selection of fine restaurants and taverns.

Saline-area families – along with everyone else looking for great eating, great shopping, great history, and great fun – are urged to keep August 7-8 open for Saline’s Summerfest 2015, a sure-to-be-memorable event.
