The Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce is hosting an arts fest at Veteran's Park, Thursday, June 9 to Saturday, June 11. Aside from an assortment of local arts and crafts, vendors will be offering food, leather goods, and used motorcycles.
The event features a live performance from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 11 by the "Stony Creek Band," which has been playing their Americana roots music for decades, long before such country-rock music acquired such a lofty title. In the 1970s, they toured extensively, and they now have the same core members, playing with even more expertise today than ever.
A featured attraction all weekend is the "Easy Rider Traveling Road Show" exhibiting replica motorcycles and memorabilia from the movie "Easy Rider".
The Bolton Bike & Art Fest is occurring during the regional Americade rally. For details, contact the Bolton Landing Chamber of Commerce at 644-3831.
