Full day of fun in store at Summerfest
SoVaNow.com / May 19, 2014
Members of the Virgilina Volunteer Fire Association and their sponsors are gearing up for the 32nd annual Summerfest, the fire department’s major fundraiser for the year.
The event kicks off this Saturday,with an 11 a.m. parade featuring floats, fire trucks, antique cars and trucks, horseback riders and music.
The street will be lined with arts and crafts vendors and the smell of good food will tempt visitors to try out the department’s award winning Brunswick Stew or their barbeque sandwiches. There will also be hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries, homemade desserts and drinks available throughout the day.
There will be games and rides for the youngsters and Centra Health will bring in its Life Flight helicopters for inspection.
Local groups will provide the musical entertainment beginning at 12:30 and continuing through 5 p.m., and then the Konnection Band will take the stage for the street dance from 6-9 p.m.
Tickets for the first of two raffles — offering $1,000 cash and a guitar as prizes — will be drawn at 9 p.m.
The winner of the other raffle — for a handmade colorful “Split Nine Patch” quilt, made and donated by Elizabeth Smith —will also be announced at 9 p.m.
The public is invited to come out for a day of good fun, good food and good fellowship. The Summerfest celebration has become a time of reunion for many whose roots date back to growing up in Virgilina.
