New events with a pirate theme for 2013 festival
The Red Flannel Festival Board of Directors has been working to provide fresh new events for the 74th “Button Down the Hatches!” Festival celebration. “We’re turning our famous ‘Sea of Red’ into a Pirate Paradise,” said Brynadette Powell, Festival First Vice President.
New events include the first Red Flannel Art Review, with local artists vying for cash prizes in local venues. Voting ended on September 18, and winners will be announced at the new Craft Beer and Wine Tasting event on September 21 at 7 p.m. at the American Legion.
Also new this year is an old fashioned trolley that will be used to transport Festival-goers to various events and venues on a route, on Red Flannel Day, and the Red Flannel Blood Drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on Main Street between Maple and Oak Streets. The Grand Lodge will also open at noon Red Flannel Day.
