An amazing event in Byfield

To the editor:

The Byfield Community Arts Center would like to thank the community for their support in making the first Byfield Music and Arts Festival such an amazing event.

On June 28 Manter Field in Byfield was transformed from an athletic field into a place where people of all ages, from infant to grandparent, could relax and enjoy the summer sun. For 12 hours, more than 16 bands performed continuously on three outdoor stages, 40 vendors displayed and sold their arts and crafts, children and adults played games and painted an 8-by-20-foot art wall, and everyone enjoyed delicious food and beverages supplied by local restaurants and brewers.

A dedicated committee and many volunteers helped make this all happen and the local business community provided support. We are grateful to Fusion Blue Productions, The Institution for Savings Charitable Foundation, Clemenzi Music, Omni Security, Wild Maple Music, Soineann practioner Trish DeCaprio, Pearson Hardware, Align Credit Union, The Grog, Cutting Chiropractic, Bridge Road Signs, Robyn Verrette and the Triton Art Department, and the many folks who showed up to get things done from beginning to end.

We also extend special thanks to the Town of Newbury administrator and Board of Selectmen, the Recreation Committee, the Newbury DPW and the Newbury Police Department.
