May 31, 2012 by James
On Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9, the community of Orem will be celebrating the official coming of summer with Orem’s Summerfest 2012 at the City Center Park located at 300 East Center Street in Orem, Utah. On Friday, this event runs from 1:00 pm – 10:00 pm and on Saturday from 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Kicking off summer, guests are invited to come out and enjoy an action-packed weekend with tons of exciting events, activities, and fun for the whole family. There is a great line up of live entertainment scheduled throughout the event. Summerfest 2012 features carnival rides, art and craft fairs, a grand parade, entertainment, and fireworks. This annual celebration has something for everyone including a baby contest, a car show, a 5k Fun run, and the annual Rotary Club Breakfast.
The Orem Arts Council has just completed its call for artists and the selected artwork, artists, and demonstrations will be showcased at this event as part of the fifth annual Orem Art in the Park festival. Most of the events for Summerfest 2012 are held at the City Center Park location, although there are a few off-ground locations as well. This event has plenty of food vendors available throughout the day, located near the children’s area. This is a family event which is held outdoors, so guests are asked to remember their summer gear.
