Music festival promises a variety of entertainment

August 11, 2012 by  

On August 24 and 25, the Sun Dried Music Festival promises good music and good times for the whole family. The musical entertainment will come from a variety of performances of jazz, rock, Latin jazz, country, blues, and salsa.

The Downtown Mason Development Authority will host the event, which is bound to attract attendees from nearby towns in the Michigan area, like Plymouth and Lansing. The festival takes place in the streets that surround the Ingham County Courthouse on South Jefferson Street in Mason, Michigan. This will be the third year of the festival.

Last year’s event drew in approximately 8,000 guests and the sponsors are hopeful that this year will bring an even bigger crowd. Print companies are probably already in the process of undertaking flyer printing and banner printing for the event. An improvement for 2012 includes having two stages for entertainers, along with a kids’ stage for age-appropriate entertainment. Admission is free for everyone thanks to the sponsors of the event. Music, merchandise vendors, food, a beverage tent, and family activities will add to the fun day.

Patrons are welcome to bring lawn chairs or blankets for sitting in the Courthouse lawn while enjoying the music. On the Friday, the main stage will have one performance from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm featuring Full House Band. There will be several entertainers on Saturday, running from midday until 11:30 pm.
