KINGSTON —Looking for something fun to do before the 4th of July weekend? Come join the Kingston Volunteer Fire Association as they Celebrate Kingston’s 325th with their Beer Fest & Bonfire on Sat., June 29.
Start the summer off with a 5-kilometer run/ walk or the 5-miler. Registration begins at 11:00 a.m. with a start time of 12:00 p.m. You can preregister at lightboxreg.com.
An “Old Fashioned Baseball” game will start 10:00 a.m. at Chase Field. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the game. Carnival rides will commence at 12:00 p.m., as well as over ten different food vendors “on the Plains” ready to feed your festival appetite. Music starts at 2:00 p.m. with One and Done, SecondHand at 5:00 p.m. and the featured performer Whiskey6 takes the stage at 8:00 p.m.
Make sure you get your “Cow Patty” deed at the Kingston Town Hall or Fire Department. There is only a limited number left and none will be sold day of. “Buttercup”, on loan from Coombs Farm, will be the guest from 1:00-3:00 p.m. If you spend $20.00, you could win $2,000! At the very least, you’ll still receive an authentic hand-signed deed to one (1) square yard of “prime Kingston real estate”.
The Beerfest begins at 3:00 p.m. with over thirty microbreweries signed up and will feature over eighty different beers, ciders and mead. The cost is $35.00.
