As Rock‘N Rimbey gets closer day by day, one of the most enjoyable activities of the event is here: the dress-up and decoration contest.
Rock‘N Rimbey spokesperson Terry Von Hollen said the dress-up and decoration part of the event is coming up the week of Aug. 19 to 23. The theme, of course, is always a tribute to 50s and 60s rock n roll.
Dressing up as “Fonzie” imitators and lots of other icons like Marilyn Monroe or Elvis Presley is a huge part of the week, but Von Hollen noted organizers would love to see people decorate their businesses too. He suggested parking a classic car or motorbike outside your business and set up some speakers to play 50s and 60s rock n roll all day. Von Hollen said many businesses dive deeply into the spirit of the event.
He noted on Friday the Rimbey Lions will be travelling around town judging the costumes and decorations and awarding prizes for those who best set the stage for the event.
Rock‘N Rimbey kicks off the afternoon of Friday, Aug. 23 with a street festival, a classic car cruise and live entertainment.
Saturday features the pancake breakfast, show and shine followed by the big supper and dance. Von Hollen noted the cut-off for tickets for the supper is Tuesday, Aug. 20 to give the caterer enough time to prepare. Tickets are available at Stationary Stories and Sound, from Terry at 403-358-8141 or order online at www.rocknrimbey.com.
