Come see some very talented teen bands, such as Velocity Band, Paige Heiftke and Friends, followed by DJ Music.
Headliner bands on Saturday evening will be Time Trax, followed by SandTown, a professional Motown, R&B, Oldies band. After receiving some very good reviews last year, we invited back SandTown who will have you dancing all evening long. Their sets include songs by greats such as Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Aretha, Elvis, Curtis Mayfield, BB King, The Supremes, and Adele, to name a few.
“Eddie and the Edsels” are back for Sunday evening’s entertainment. With two Las Vegas style shows and a huge repertoire of songs, they have performed shows at the Palace and State Theatres. Eddie & the Edsels will perform Sunday from 6-9 p.m. at the Gazebo stage.A large variety of yummy carnival foods will be available for every taste. Enjoy a Greek gyro or an Italian sausage sandwich. For dessert, feast on a funnel cake, French waffle, or elephant ear, and how about a cup of freshly-squeezed lemonade to hit the spot. New this year, Sweet CeCe’s will be here with their frozen yogurt treats. Try some kettle corn, or a gourmet coffee or latte. These are just a few of the food offerings you’ll find at the Festival. Come and try something different every day. The Hospitality Tent is a great place to enjoy your meal while watching the live entertainment on stage.
Stop by the Exhibitors Tent and visit with area businesses and civic organizations. The North Royalton Festival Parade on Sunday promises to be a lot of fun. It will include many floats, vehicles, groups, and the spectacular North Royalton High School Marching Band! Step off is at 3 p.m. The parade is sponsored by the Tri-C Western Campus, so look for them in the parade.
