Music on the lake: Wataba Festival turns five
The fifth annual Wataba Lake Festival will be held at 25 Clearview Drive in Ridgefield from noon to 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21.
The festival kicks off with children’s music from Kevin McCarthy and Bring the Hoopla, which will go from 12 to 2p.m.
The Angry O’Haras and Pretty Saro take the Wataba Lake stage from 2 to 5 p.m. for the bluegrass part of the show. Pretty Saro was named the winner of the 2018 Telefunken Band Competition at Bodunk Bluegrass Festival.
The Flubber Brothers and Backyard Swing will play the closing set from 5 to 6 p.m.
“We are so excited to have Pretty Saro headlining the 5th annual Wataba Lake Festival. They’re a hot, up and coming bluegrass band, fresh off their 2018 win at the Telefunken Band competition,” said Roger Grannis, co-producer. “Families with small kids especially enjoy the Wataba Lake fest, because we start the day with children’s music and have several kids’ activities provided all afternoon. There will be plenty of food and fun for all.”
Wataba Festival will offer music, food, kids’ activities, and friendly fun.
The suggested donation is $5 per person, $20 per family.
