Saturday a Day of Music and Motors

IRONWOOD - The 2010 Festival was shortened by one day this year, however, it wasn't  short on activities and entertainment.

The last day of Festival Ironwood began early with a  Big Top Pancake Breakfast, organized by Lighthouse Faith Center.  At 8 am American Legion Post 5 served as Honor Guard for the  “Star Spangled Banner” Ceremony.

Saturday saw the continuation of many events; the City Wide Festival Sales at participating businesses, the Alley Cat Garage Car & Bike Parts Swap Meet, that was organized by Gogebic Area Thrift and the Child Identification Program, sponsored by Masonic Lodge 389.

Saturday also offered an Outdoor Pool Tournament, sponsored by Prizm Entertainment that took place at the depot. An arts and crafts sale also took place at the depot. The sale was organized by the Ironwood American Legion Auxiliary.

There were no ducks left to be picked at the Hope sponsored Duck Pick. The pond was cleaned out Friday. Next year the organizers plan on doubling the prizes.

Slow Poke Da Clown/Happy Daze & Twinklz Face Painting, by Cheryl Cunico was were back making baloon animals for kids and painting incredible faces.

Saturday afternoon of course was highlighted by the Annual Old Depot Car Show organized by Klassic Kruisers Car Club.

While the Car show took place on the street there was a great deal of entertainment going on under the Big Top.

The afternoon began with a two hour long music concert by the Gogebic Range Concert Band. The band played many of their audience's favorite songs, including those featured below in our videos.

As usual, the band under the direction of Larry Gabka, did a great job entertaining the crows gathered at the Festival. The Band's summer Schedule continues next weekend in Washburn for the Reunion Parade.

The Ranch Boys took over the entertainment of the festival goers when the GRCB concert had concluded. The group performed Country and Western favorites  for two hours.

We video taped their performance and have included a few of those videos below.


Later in the day members of the Ironwood Dance Company gave a performance to a packed house. There were dance numbers performed by several age groups. The wonderful show was M.C.'d by  Marc Silver.

The Dance Recital was followed by the Old Depot Auto Show, trophy presentation and Classic Car Cruise/Parade on Wheels.

Then came the Fantastic Festival Finale, a  50’s & 60’s Dance, featuring live music by Robbie Vee & his Rock & Roll Caravan,” organized by the Klassic Kruisers
