Brockville – The annual Red Hot and Blue Rockabilly Festival was held for the second year in Brockville this past weekend.
Numbers from this year’s event grew from last years with the Rock n’ Roll Dance Party held on Friday night, the Prom Night party on Saturday and Surf n’ Cruise selling out.
Prior to coming to Brockville last year, the festival was held for nine years in Montreal before being moved by organizers Nathalie Lavergne and Amund Christensen, owners of the Spitfire Cafe, and Golden Age Comics and Collectibles in Downtown Brockville.
The annual event celebrates the music and style of the 1950s and featured the two indoor dances and cruise along with various musical performances at the BrockBerry, Spitfire, and Crows Nest.
On Saturday was the free activities in Hardy park including a vintage vendors row, vintage fashion show, car show and live music and Guest DJ’s through-out the day. The free activities were suppose to continue on the Sunday, but due to the rain, it was moved indoors to the Courthouse Lodge, also owned by Lavergne and Christensen.
Everything wrapped up on Sunday with the Wrap party at the Court House Lodge.
