Maumelle chamber to present Bash on the Boulevard Sept. 16

On Saturday, Sept. 16, the Maumelle Area Chamber of Commerce will present the Second Annual Bash on the Boulevard.

Located at the Town Centre Shopping Center Parking Lot at 115 Audubon Drive, the festival will begin at noon and continue until 8 p.m. This free, family-friendly festival connects local businesses and residents in a fun and energetic atmosphere and is sponsored by Fidelity Communications and the Cherokee Casino and Hotel.

Situated directly on the Boulevard, in the heart of Maumelle, this festival has something for everyone. Local vendors, arts and crafts, a free "Kids Zone," a beer garden, a Game Day TV Sporting area, food trucks, local and regional entertainment, games and more.

Positioned in middle of the festival, the Sonic of Maumelle Kid Zone will offer a free and engaging environment for kids. There will be a rock climbing wall, inflatable obstacle course, carnival rides and games, coloring activities, story time, face painting and prizes.

The Arkansas Roofing Kompany Beer Garden will be set up on the East side of the parking lot. Sports enthusiasts will enjoy the Sherwood Urgent Care Game Day Area, which will feature a 24-foot Game Day Trailer provided by River City RV.

There will be a perimeter fence around the entire "Bash on the Boulevard" for security purposes and will allow visitors to enjoy a festival beverage at all of the activities.

Performances will begin on the Main Stage beginning at noon and include local dance studios, gymnastic teams, martial arts, cheer programs and fitness routines. Live music will fill the festival at 3:30 p.m., featuring local artist TJ Ashley and his band. As night falls, the event lights up with the featured musical artist and local favorite Tragikly White beginning at 6 p.m.
The festival is run almost exclusively by volunteers from the Maumelle area, including the services from the City of Maumelle Parks and Recreation, City of Maumelle Police Department and City of Maumelle Fire Department.

Festival proceeds help to raise funds to support economic progress and promote entrepreneurship opportunities in the area. This is great event to get out and meet your neighbors, visitors to the area, local businesses and the community.
