Pelham Summerfest proved to be the place to be Saturday for everyone, but, the fun isn’t over as the festival continues Sunday.

The place was packed as families and friends met to “Chill on the Hill.”

“It’s been absolutely amazing,” Pelham Mayor Dave Augustyn said. “The weather is wonderful, the crowd is great. I’m very happy to see all the families here, this is kind of the ‘family day’ component of the festival and it’s nice to see that it’s a great success.”

“It’s so nice to have this great crowd, people out enjoying their community,” he said. “I was just talking to someone and they said came in from Fort Erie, they wanted to be here because they just love what we offer, the nice small-town feel and real community spirit.”

For Thursday and Friday night’s events, the Mayor was extremely happy with the success.

“I think Thursday night for the opening we had about 5,000 people and for Friday night’s country night we had at least 3,000 people, “ he said. “It was a great crowd, lots of people lots of fun.”

“Today has been really great, tonight (Saturday night) I’m looking forward to hearing some great bands,” he said.

“This year we also have a teen zone set up at Marlene Stewart Streit Park, activities to involve the teens.”

Sunday the fun continues with Sunday in the Park beginning at 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

“Tomorrow I’ll be serving up breakfast, cooking up something for everybody and the second year of the car show,” Augustyn said. “The car show is really great because we also have food, music and other entertainment for the whole family at the same time.”

“So, if you are looking for something to do, come to Pelham and enjoy what we have to offer.”
