Wilton’s Annual Parkfest Next Weekend

By Staff Report | News

WILTON — It’s almost time for ParkFest, the Town of Wilton’s Annual Community Day. ParkFest 2013 will take place on Saturday, July 13, from 11 a.m.–9 p.m., at Gavin Park in the Town of Wilton.

This year, the headline musical guests will be DEC8DIA, the Ultimate 80s Experience. From Phil Collins to Rick Springfield to Cyndi Lauper and Billy Idol, DEC8DIA will cover the fabulous tunes of the 1980s. DEC8DIA will perform on the ParkFest main stage from 7:15–9:15 p.m.

Warming up the crowd for DEC8DIA will be regional favorites, the rock trio Vontus, who will perform on ParkFest’s main stage from 4:45–7 p.m. Featured on Gavin Park’s brand new gazebo stage will be the rock and roll sounds of Bobby Dick, plus the musical duo 2 Broads with Alotta Sound.

ParkFest will offer rides, food, and fun on the midway. Plus, some lucky ParkFest-goers will go home with a share of the $2,000 in awards and prizes being given out for various contests and competitions to be held that day, including: 1K and 5K runs, an ice cream eating contest, a classic car show, a sidewalk chalk-drawing contest and the all-new Great Town of Wilton Cupcake War. ParkFest attendees will also be able to take a free spin on the STAR 101.3 prize wheel.

Other events and entertainment at ParkFest will include a wine tasting, racing pigs, a craft fair, a bicycle stunt show, and the amazing woodcarving feats of SawDogs. Additional child-centered activities will be a rock climbing wall, caricature drawings, face painting, pony rides, a petting zoo, and a wild animal park. Plus, the Adirondack Phantoms and DAX will be on hand to help celebrate the Town of Wilton’s big day, and the Saratoga County Animal Shelter and H.O.P.E. will be there with adorable pets looking for new forever-homes.

Finally, not to be missed will be the ParkFest fireworks grand finale.

Admission to ParkFest 2013 and parking are both free.
