Park Silly Sunday Market’s Oktober Silly Fest Returns

Submitted by Kimberly KuehnPark Silly Market cofounder

The last event for the Park Silly Sunday Market, the Oktober Silly Fest, will close the market season with a bang on lower Main Street on Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. To celebrate the success of another silly season, the market will put on its final day-long free street festival to thank the community for its participation. Jaimie Atlas, Park Silly Sunday Market’s Programmer invites locals to "come out for one last hoo-hah of Summer with your neighbors and friends!"

The Park Silly Sunday Market is a non-profit organization and treats the Oktober SillyFest as an opportunity for participants to make donations to help keep the 15 Week summer street festival a free event for the community. "Where else can you go and enjoy an entire day with your friends and family – hear 8 different musical groups, see a variety of performance art and entertain your kids all for free?" beams Visionary Director Jewels Harrison.

October 28 will host a variety of new unique vendors, music, non-profits, and sustainability groups and the Park Silly Sunday Market will be jamming the Oktober Silly Fest with some additional fun and silliness. On the program for the day’s free activities are musicians wandering through the crowds, sidewalk chalk artists, puppet shows, candle dipping, a petting coral, fire performances at sunset by Fire Reign, and circus acts along the street. Musical performances on the main stage include Brian Ernst, a one-man band with 17 instruments, Celtic music by Swagger and insurgent bluegrass from Victor Barnes. New for the 2008 Oktober Silly Fest is The Solar Saucer, a 14-foot tall mobile and fully functioning art piece by Scott Whittaker, which will be providing solar power to the main stage and to the market for the entire day.

To keep warm on the fall night, Park Silly Sunday Market will be selling hot drinks at the expanded beer garden. So whether you come early with the family and want something to entertain the kids, you want to do a little Christmas shopping at the season’s last market, or you want to swing in to the beer garden and enjoy some live music, there is something for everyone at the 2008 Oktober Silly Fest.
