The Gladstone Community Festival is coming on August 2 - 4. It kicks off Friday afternoon in Max Patterson Park. Visit the Vendors and enjoy the family-friendly beer garden. Bring the kids, grab a meal, adult beverage or root beer and relax with some nice music. This year's Movie in the Park is "Incredibles 2". Saturday's big parade kicks off the weekend and features the famous band called "The Beat Goes On". After the parade enjoy live entertainment on the stage throughout the festival and lots of FREE family fun in the park. Kids will love the giant downhill slip-n-slide, dunk tank & fishing pond. Cruise the Vendor Market, try your luck at Bingo and 50/50 drawings. Enter the pie baking, watermelon eating or chili cookoff competitions. Lots of food vendors will be there to satisfy your appetite. Sunday morning you'll catch flying pancakes and tap your toes to The Festival Brass at the Community Breakfast. Flying pancakes are FREE to seniors, others pay a donation. The popular Classic Car Show opens at 10 a.m. with over 200 beauties to admire. From 1 - 3 p.m., you'll be entertained by live music.
