As plans progress for Summer Fest, committee Co-Chairman T.J. Mohney left a May 16 meeting with a good feeling about the desire to
beef up the second day of the two-day festival’s offerings.
“We’ve got a good lineup on Sunday,” he said.
Summer Fest, organized by Brookfield United Methodist Church, will be held Aug. 10 and 11 at the church and on and around the green in Brookfield Center.
Sunday still will feature the pet parade and blessing of the animals, Water Ball Challenge showcasing area fire departments, a car cruise with music by Keen Gene and a magic show by High 5 the Clown. New this year: Jungle Terry’s Traveling Zoo of exotic animals; RC Little Canine Cruisers, a dog trick and agility team; and a cookie competition in memory of Bill McMullin.
This year’s Summer Fest will be dedicated to military personnel, those currently serving and veterans. Ideas to honor veterans include erecting an honor or tribute wall in which the names of military personnel can be posted, giving goodie bags to vets who register and putting American flags on sponsor signs.
