With the festival in Veteran field we are a little bit further away from downtown,so we will concentrate our efforts to the bird site, starting at 4 pm with family friendly activities.
We will have two bouncing castle. Every hour we will burn a small wooden Phoenix,
and there will be fire spinners showing off there magic.

At 6:30 the procession leaves from downtown, to arrive at the bird site around 7 pm, and the lighting of the Phoenix happens at 8 pm


We are still filling out spaces.

Catch the colorful inspiration of the Firebird Dance Ensemble – in the procession or around the bird. This is organized by Lara Vracarich of Creative Spirit Fusion

In downtown  we will place musicians in the stores, and have Street performers.  At 6:30  the procession leaves, going up the bike path from the Foundry building to the bird site. We will walk down Bridge Street with our drums, to announce the leaving.

Pokie Poke the Jogeleur will be back with his entertaining show.

Shuttle buses will run continuously from 4 – 11 pm connecting downtown to bird site and Sears parking lot.

Dirty Soap Blues Band  is a chaotic group of buskers turned studio band. Rooted in blues, yet overwhelmed by 50’s and 60’s groups ranging from Elvis, Shirelles, to Dion and the Belmonts – it all shines through them during their live performances. If you have a chance to witness a live performance you might have to sit through some bickering and arguing between songs – which creates the unique show they will eventually deliver.

5 – 6:30 pm     Dirk Quinn


is the guitarist for a high energy funk/jazz band based out of Philadelphia that travels extensively throughout the US and Canada. Utilizing over a decade of steady performing, Quinn has developed a unique and progressive style – one that appeals to a wide variety of music listeners with fans ranging from the jam band hippies to the jazz snobs. Drawing inspiration from every musical genre, his solo acoustic sound has been compared to the guitar “pyrotechnics” of Keller Williams and Michael Hedges, while his full band compositions bear resemblances that range from the honest, urban funk of Soulive to the brave experimentation of Medeski

 7 – 9 pm    The P’Villians a tribute band to the Doors will play before and during the burn.

The lighting happens at 8 pm
