ALPHA — The end of Summer Blues Fest in Alpha, brought to Iron County by Bob Black Promotions, was jammed packed with events Saturday.

Starting the day off was the Blessing of the bikes at 11:00 a.m., followed by the Veterans Freedom Ride and Memorial Poker Run where they cruised from Alpha to Iron County and back to Alpha.

The music line–up started with Carolyn Jo and company at 12:30 p.m., followed by Greg Higgins, The Fireside Band, Tone Hawks and The Sons of Legend wrapped up all the evening at 7:00 p.m.

The kids had plenty to do as well as the adults at this year’s Blues Fest, from the Bluez Berry Pie contest at 4:00 p.m., to face painting and fun balloon animals.

This year was a great success and everyone is looking forward to getting back together for some more good food, great people and always good times.
