Topics discussed at the final meeting of the Ramble Fest committee on Monday ranged from a guitar raffle to the introduction of a child-friendly area.
The organizers noted that a raffle for an acoustic electric guitar is made possible by the generosity of Roxy’s Music Store. They expressed concern about the potential for families not to show up during the July 4th weekend. But they are jazzed about the introduction the Ramble KidZone.
The zone will host a wide variety of activities just for kids, including, but not limited to, bubble art, a bounce house, face painting, a portable tennis game, and an appearance from the Muckdogs mascot.
According to committee member Kim Argenta, the KidZone will be present so that kids can have a good time and celebrate art.
Fellow committee member Sue Gagne came up with the idea, believing it would keep the Ramble Fest more family-oriented.
The Ramble KidZone will be open at the City Church parking lot from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 3.
The Ramble Arts & Music Fest, featuring performances from The Ghost Riders, Penny Whiskey, and more, will take place at Jackson Square from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 3. More information can be found at www.ramblemusic.com.
