YORKTOWN, N.Y. – The Yorktown Lions Club hosted its first full-day Summer Spectacular Music Festival Saturday at Jack DeVito Veterans Memorial Field in Yorktown, drawing a nice crowd throughout the afternoon and evening.
The family-friendly event, the culmination of the Lions Club’s Summer Concert Series, started at noon with a lineup of mostly local bands performing on the stage, along with vendors, food and drinks, hay rides, face painting, raffles, games, and kids activities.
School of Rock Bedford started the show at noon, followed by Sailing Stone, Sands of Time, The Justin Veatch All-Star Alumni Band, Chain of Fools, and Stagecoach (the only non-area band, coming from Long Island).
The biggest crowds of the day turned out for Yorktown’s own country singer Jessica Lynn—her first appearance since returning from an international tour—which capped the evening.
“It’s the first time we’ve had a full-day concert,” Ed Lachterman, of the Yorktown Lions, told Yorktown News. “We’re very happy with the turnout. People are having a great time, we’ve seen a very positive response. It’s good to have such a nice community event, and we’re really proud to be able to sponsor it. It’s a great day for all.”
