Rocking out for free
SoVaNow.com / September 18, 2013
Clarksville Rocks and Rolls, a free festival slated Saturday, Sept. 28, will make its debut with the Overtime Band belting out tunes to cap off a day of fun, food and vintage automobiles.
The sponsors of the event — Clarksville Ace Hardware, Moore’s Chevrolet, Clarksville Auto, Clarksville Community Pharmacy and United Country Virginia Realty — wanted to bring people out for an old-fashioned block party, said Ace Hardware owner Doug Jones.
Their solution: reserve the newly restored Robbins Park and invite everyone in the town to stop by.
“We have something for everyone,” said Jones. There will be kids’ games, a cruise-in for car and truck enthusiasts, the Lake Country SPCA will offer animals for adoption and sell specialized cat and dog ID tags, and Clarksville Relay for Life will host a cornhole tournament with 25% of the proceeds going to the winner.
Food is free, courtesy of the United Country Virginia Realty cooking team, who will prepare barbecue, hotdogs and soft drinks.
And of course, there’s the music.
The gates open at 3 p.m. and the party continues until 10 p.m. The Overtime Band will perform from 6-10 p.m. Band members have been performing together for almost two decades, and they offer a playlist full of dance party music.
Bring your lawn chair, beach blanket and dancing shoes to Robbins Park, Woodland Drive in Clarksville, Jones advises.
This is a family event; no alcohol is allowed.
