The Royal Oak Optimist Club has once again managed to put together a family night packed with an endless assortment of excitement for the 8th annual Bestest Concert Ever at the Royal Oak Farmers Market from 5-8 p.m. March 9, 2019.
For just $5 per person, attendees can eat yummy foods, dance to live music, try playing various instruments and run around discovering a multitude of other fun things to do.
All of the event’s proceeds will support the Royal Oak Optimist Club, an organization dedicated to bringing out the best in the kids in their community while encouraging positivity and hope.
Music lovers will be excited to explore McCourt’s Musical Petting Zoo, where attendees can drum up a beat, strum a ukulele, get acquainted with the oboe and learn the difference between a viola and a violin at this hands-on exhibit.
The Bill Grogan’s Goat, Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits, and The Burros are all slated to deliver concert performances, too, so whether you’re looking forward to some rock and roll with Irish flair, quirky “kindie rock” by Miss Paula and the Candy Bandits, or perhaps some folk tunes, there’s something for everyone.
Motor City Irish Dance is also ready to show off their best Irish step dancing and teach some moves to the audience as well.
Is that all? Far from it. The rock n’ roll silent auction is also returning this year. Enter for your chance to win instruments, artwork, puzzles, toys and other cool prizes. You can also purchase a new bike helmet from the Optimists for just $5 while you’re there.
There will also be face painting, balloon animals, temporary tattoos and the new “Upside Down Van.” And if tummies start grumbling, local eateries will have food and beverages available for purchase throughout the event, too.
Sound like a fun time for you and your fam? Load the kids up and head to the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market on March 9, 2019, from 5 to 8 p.m.
