The Downtown Corry Business Committee has spent the last month planning and organizing for this year's CorryFest.

The committee was recently granted permission to host activities on Saturday, June 18, on Main Street, down Center Street and in parking lots and sidewalks downtown after the annual CorryFest parade.

Alice Muir, owner of The Purple Peacock Candle Co., 36 N. Center St., said several events for the day are in the works.

"We're going to have two local bands," she said. "Slim and Red and 4th Cousin will be performing."  

One band will be located in the Davis Insurance parking lot and the other in the parking lot by the Climax train mural.

Leisure Time Honda-Suzuki is expected to be on hand with some Can-Am Spyders and motorcycles.

Also, there will be a motorcycle show from about 1:30 to 4 p.m.

Muir said there is room for more motorcycles for anyone interested in participating. 

Those interested in joining the motorcycle show should contact Lorrie Kostreba, owner of the White Butterfly at 664-4181.

Sidewalk sales will begin at 10 a.m. and continue to 5 p.m.

Muir said there will also be characters from “Wizard of Oz” walking around for photo opportunities.

Augie's Pizza will be selling pizza by the slice, and there will also be a kids carnival with games.

Hungry patrons can visit a hot dog stand, which will feature hot dog toppings made by some of the participating downtown business owners.

Alcohol will not be available for purchase at the event, but pop and water will available for purchase at the hot dog stand, The Brazil Nut and at Augie's Pizza.

Muir said the event still needs volunteers to walk around and assist with security to assure there are no disturbances and to help move tables onto the sidewalks when the streets open back up to vehicle traffic.

Those interested in volunteering should contact Muir by June 1 at 664-0246.
