The Villagers perform despite weather

Published: Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 10:45 AM.

The headlining act, The Villagers, who had reunited for the first time in 15 years, made the best of a bad situation and set up shop at The Thirsty Goat at The Port Inn and let the good times roll.

Locals and out-of-town visitors who originally came for the music festival crowded the porch area of the lounge and enjoyed some of their favorite tunes from the 60s and 70s. Even after being rained out once, The Villagers took the stage a second time and played another set much to the delight of the crowd.

It seemed that Mother Nature couldn’t stop the music after all.

Only seven weeks out from the kickoff of the centennial events, the fundraiser was expected to bring in much-needed funds for the planned activities which include a parade, a light show and the annual fireworks display.

Funds are currently being raised through the sale of the commemorative centennial coins and PSJ T-shirts with a fish fry currently being planned.
