HELLO AGAIN --  Things seem to be hopping at Papa Robbs with even more to come, but a short mention about food vendors & our guest performers (known as Buskers or Street Performers).  All of the performers work strictly for tips be they clowns, face painters, musicians, etc., just as if they were working a local town festival and they need your support to continue their work. Many of them devote free time for worthwhile causes also - just some food for thought.

Ah yes, food. This has been mentioned before but bears repeating for obvious reasons. In spite of many requests for food trucks, hotdogs & other food vendors there seems to be little support when they are on site. If they do get enough business they simply have no choice but to go elsewhere - they must make a living as that is their job. So, if you want food then show your  support & this includes our Festival Friday hotdogs. Mr. Meanie Weener & Terry's Dawgs are both reputable, clean, fully inspected and have good offerings. We lost one and would like to keep Terry's Dawgs. Again, just something to think about.

COMING EVENTS--  Open Mic continues every Tuesday at 6:30. If you missed this night then you are missing something special. Various styles, music types and musicians are coming out to perform some very good music.

Saturday, July 25 from 5:00 till 9:00 we are hosting another LATIN FESTIVAL. Fun, games, food, DJ/music & live radio remote broadcast, plus prizes & surprises all together for a special day. Games will be set up by 3:00. Keep watch on our Facebook for updates.

Festival Fridays continue. July 24 will feature a Drum -In Drum Circle pus the artists & poets of Guerilla Poets & Slap The Paint. Music, Art, Poetry plus games, face painting, drumming & yes - Terry's Dawgs (hotdogs).

July 31, Curley the Balloon Man returns plus Zumba Dance & the talented kids from Next Step Dance Studio.

Tripp The Clown is off for two weeks - a church event & then clown camp in Minn. He returns on Aug. 7 - probably with some new ideas, tricks & performances. That night we are adding a special artists & crafters night as part of our Festival Friday & we are excited about that as it has been requested. If successful we hope to add as a regular through the Fall & work with local galleries, etc to bring some visual & more forming art to the Friday Festivals.

Watch our Facebook & social media for updates. See you soon.
