Perfect Tuesday at Rochesterfest
Tuesday's weather was perfect for Rochesterfest. It was Senior Day at the Fest and many seniors came down to play Bingo, meet local celebrities and be entertained by noontime music from Swing Street. And tons of people came down to enjoy delicious food from the 30 vendors at Rochesterfest's new Soldiers Field location.
It was Salute To Veteran's Night and after the VFW Color Guard posted the colors, the Rochester Concert Band, under the direction of Chuck Blattner, performed on the Treasure Island Main Stage. The night capped off with Celebrity Game Night hosted by yours truly. Randy Brock (KTTC/Fox 47), Steve Lange (Rochester Magazine/PB), Samm Adams (KROC-FM/Quick Country) and Madeline Van Ert (Miss Rochester) led teams made up of veterans and audience members in Celebrity Family Feud. When all was said and done, Miss Rochester's team squeaked out a win over Samm Adam's team in a close championship round.
There are several more Rochesterfest events scheduled for Wednesday including entertainment on the Treasure Island main stage at noon and 4pm. KTTC's 10 Who Make A Difference is at 1pm. And it's Family Fun and Youth Sports Night at Soldiers Field Park from 5:30 until 8:30pm featuring great family fun with animals, clowns, games and entertainment plus a showcase of Rochester Youth Sports.
