Beer tent comes back to Colorama
The Chamber of Commerce will host a beer tent during the Colorama Festival celebration at North Dam Park.
Chamber Manager Peggy Nevsimal said a 1500 square-foot tent will be located on the tennis court at North Dam Park and staffed by volunteers.
Nevsimal said that people’s IDs and age will be checked at the entrance to the area and that beer and wine will be available.
She said the beer tent will be open from 4-9 p.m. Thursday, May 9; 4-9 p.m. on Friday, May 10; and Saturday, May 11, from 4-10 p.m.
Live music will be featured both Friday and Saturday, Nevsimal stated. Love Stitch will be the featured band on Friday and Rock A Bar on Saturday.
Once a staple of Colorama, the beer tent hasn’t been a part of the event for a couple of decades. Chamber board members said people still miss it and want a central place to gather, many as they come back to town for a visit.
