Atwood Summerfest: bigger & better

It's time once again for Atwood Summerfest, and this year it's bigger and better than ever!

It's now a two-day festival, with entertainment on Saturday and Sunday, July 28th and 29th.

The fest is a benefit for the Goodman Community Center (formerly known as the Atwood Community Center).

Most of the musical entertainment still happens on Saturday, with music on two stages. New this year: an Eclectic Stage with performances on Sunday.

The event happens on Atwood Avenue..from the Barrymore to Schenck's Corners, with icy cold beverages, ethnic food, cool stuff for sale, and more.
