Sharon prepares for Water Fire festivities

Posted: Updated:

SHARON, Pa. - After months of planning, booking entertainment and food vendors Water Fire Sharon is just days away.

Organizers have been receiving calls from as far away as Canada and Philadelphia inquiring about all the days activities.
     
"Part of Water Fire is about showcasing the talent we have in the community. The other part is about bringing new and different talent; things that people may have not experienced in the area," says Water Fire executive director Dayna Sear. 

The festivities begin at 10 a.m. and so does shuttle service from nearby parking areas.

Visitors will stroll the streets enjoying the Art Beat Arts Festival, Old Fashioned Farmers 
Market and music throughout the city.

"We have a wine and dine on Vine which is a gourmet food experience on Vine avenue," says Sear.

From fine wine to dancing, on the main stage spectators can put on their dancing shoes, learn some new dance moves and swing away Dr. Zoot swing band until midnight.

"We have a Japanese drumming band coming from Pittsburgh. We have a calypso steel drum band from just south of Pittsburgh. So we have just a little bit of everything," she says. 

The main event starts at 8:30 p.m. but in an effort to get the best spot to see the lighting of the 55 brassiers you should arrive around 8 p.m.

With hundreds of thousands of dollars invested in this event, organizers are hoping local businesses will see the greatest return.

"The estimated economic impact is estimated at just over $7 million over three years," Sear says.
