Record Observer - - Arts & Entertainment - By DAN TABLER Con­tribut­ing Writer

CEN­TRE­VILLE — The Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park will be filled with mu­sic this Satur­day as the Cen­tre­ville Lions Club’s 35th an­nual Bay Mu­sic Fes­ti­val runs on two stages from 1 to 9 p.m.

The long-play­ing event is be­lieved to be the old­est con­tin­u­ous mu­sic fes­ti­val on the Eastern Shore and has raised thou­sands for the Sight First and other char­i­ties served by mem­bers of the Lions Club and Lions In­ter­na­tional.

With a re­duced ad­mis­sion of just $5, and more fam­i­ly­ori­ented ac­tiv­i­ties and chil­dren 10 and un­der, free of charge, this may at­tract the largest crowd in the 35 years of the fes­ti­val.

The mu­sic on two stages will come from 12 dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal groups, while 14 dif­fer­ent ar­ti­san ven­dors will fill the day for ev­ery­one up to 9 p.m.

Along with the YMCA of the Ch­e­sa­peake, chil­dren will have plenty to keep them oc­cu­pied with games, plus a moon bounce and slide, and the Phillips Wharf Fish­mo­bile. Ev­ery­one will find plenty to eat and drink through­out the day.

As in past years, a spe­cial added at­trac­tion with the event will be a PRS SE Stan­dard 24 gui­tar do­nated by Paul Reed Smith, from his na­tion­ally known fac­tory down on Kent Is­land, along with an East­man Acous­tic gui­tar, both to be raf­fled off and pre­sented dur­ing the day. You will not have to be present to win. Tick­ets for both may be pur­chased on­line at www.doy­ou­ca­boo­dle.com.

Drive right in, it is free with Boy Scouts as­sist­ing Lions mem­bers to park your car.

Dell Foxx Com­pany will close the Bay Mu­sic Fes­ti­val Satur­day, June 11, at the Queen Anne’s County 4-H Park.
