Some of SharonFest's happy patrons

Wow was that a great Saturday.  Mother Nature may not have cooperated as much as we would have liked but the good times still happened. 

The booths filled with games, gaming, raffles, face painting and more provided fun for folks of all ages while also helping non-profits throughout our community introduce themselves to us and also help with funding.

Our Open Mic in the Kroger Dining Tent showed just how much talent is in the area as three local high schoolers (Emma Schultz, Addie Sholar & Matt Schneider) showed their skills and some great voices.  We had dance and cheerleading demonstrations filled with great smiles.

Our lineup of inflatable rides were obviously a hit as there were kids playing (and wearing themselves out) until closing each night.  The Extreme Air bungee ride provided thrills for the riders as well as their parents.  Laser Tag was fun place to watch kids testing out their marksmanship skills on their friends and family.

Family Fest at SharonFest provided a lot of great memories as kids had a chance to pet a tortoise, hold a large snake or say hello to a lizard.  Maybe they got a balloon animal from one of the stilt walkers or had a chance to hug a mascot wandering the grounds.  Of course, watching a magician at work or skilled performers playing with fire was pretty cool as well.

Stagger Lee and Final Order brought some rock energy to the big stage and entertained the crowd.  People of all ages enjoyed both bands and we have the pictures to prove it.

Thanks to all of you who attended the festival.  We will be posting dozens and dozens of photos on this site (keep checking the gallery pages as we get them uploaded).
