The Wheeler Business Association is sponsoring the second annual Wheeler Summerfest in Wheeler's Waterfront Park on July 21 and 22.
This year's event will again feature live local music, entrees and treats from local restaurants, steam boat rides, a bouncy house, and more. Fishing guide, Russ Morrow, will provide water taxi services between the Summerfest and the Nehalem Celebration of Crafts from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
The celebration begins at 10 a.m. Saturday with food, fun, and vendors. Saturday's music lineup includes local country/bluegrass band Deathgrass, Denise Drake & Dave Quinton, Coaster, and Used Guys. On Sunday the fun continues at 11 a.m. with music by another local favorite, Sedona Fire, followed by an open mic between 1-2 p.m. To sign up for the open mic, call 503-368-2669 or email email@example.com. Sign-up sheets will be available on site also. After the open mic, The Coconuts will be on stage until 4 p.m. to finish the day.
Throughout the weekend local restaurants The Rising Star, Handy Creek Bakery, and The Tsunami Grill will offer their customer favorites, and other great vendors will round out the "menu" with sweet treats like pies, cookies, cotton candy, snow cones and ice cream. New this year is also a beer garden provided by The Tsunami Grill.
There is still room for vendors. If interested in participating please contact the Wheeler Business Association via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
