Save the date of Saturday, June 1, 2013 as the town of Weston hosts its spectacular Weston 300 Field Day and Grand Concert Celebration. The festivities begin with Field Day from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. taking place at the Weston High School. “Entertainment will include face painting, dunk tanks, clowns, a petting zoo, and a variety of fun, kid-friendly games as well as delicious local foods. Performances by Weston dance groups and other local organizations will occur throughout the day. There will be a “Weston 300 Olympics”, featuring sporting competitions on the turf field, and a 5K-road race. Robotics, science demonstrations and a film festival will be featured in the Weston High School.” All this and so much more….
Then from 6:00 – 9:30 p.m., there will be a grand celebration concert “Pops style” at the Weston High School football stadium. “On an over-sized stage with spectacular lighting, a 300-person chorus and combined orchestras will perform American favorites, gospel, jazz and contemporary classics. Thunderous singing by a town-wide choral group will culminate with Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, followed by a rousing round of cannon fire and a spectacular fireworks display.”
In order to defray the cost of the festivities, Weston 300 is asking for modest donations* from participating residents. Wrist bands will be sold in advance at the Weston Recreation Center and on site at Weston High School on June 1. The prices range from $50 for a Reserved Pops-style Table of Five for the concert and $30 for an all day family donation for both events to $5 for bleacher and lawn seating for the concert and several other options in between.
As you may recall, Weston was incorporated as a town in January 2013, and so this year marks its 300th anniversary. The town website sums it up perfectly, “Weston has had a remarkable history, spanning from its rural farmland beginnings to the thriving community it is today. The 300th anniversary is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate, reflect and showcase the varied aspects of this historic town. To that end, the Town of Weston plans to commemorate the accomplishments and development of the town over the past three centuries through a series of special events” that span throughout the 2013 year.
