Festivale Italiliano

Emily gets her turn to join the drum line

HURLEY - September 4, 2011

Rain Saturday postponed the Goldenaire’s performance by an hour. For those who waited for their favorite Drum and Bugle Corps were appropriately rewarded. The D&B under the direction of Dan Pitrone gave their best performance of the season. Saturday’s performance at Festival Italiano in Hurley was their penultimate appearance for this year.

The Goldenaire’s played their audience’s favorite military and patriotic songs, including their Armed Force’s Medley. They also performed popular songs including a sing-a-long to the tune Sweet Caroline.

Sunday the Goldenaire’s will conclude their 2011 season at the Labor Day parade in Ontonagon.
The Goldenaire’s were part of a long day of festivities on Silver Street, Saturday. Several other performers entertained the crowds at the Italian Festival. Early in the day Gary and Fred performed at the Associated Bank Building, providing entertainment to the many people enjoying Italian Food and Irish beer on Siler Street. Unlike last year’s frigid temperatures, this year the weather was perfect right up until 5:00pm when a nasty weather front moved through, sending everyone for cover.

The rain lasted for a brief period and then it was back to near perfect once again.
The Up North Connection entertained on the west end of Silver Street for several hours. The great Bluegrass group was great as usual.

The entertainment concluded with street dance and a performance by The Recess Bullies. The rock group from Houghton was the winner of this year’s Battle of the Bands held in Ashland.
