Top Live Entertainment Acts Will Headline St. Rene Family Fest and Carnival 2013

Old favorites and hot new entertainment acts can be found on the main stage lineup for this year's St. Rene Family Fest and Carnival, 63rd Place and New England.

Taking the stage from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, June 27 will be 
Caliente, which plays "latin jazz, rock, salsa, and
Motown/dusties performed with a latin groove."

Kicking off the weekend with a "Yee haw!" will be the Ross Clayton Band at 7:00 p.m. Friday, June 28. The band says its sound is a mixture of both current and older country rock covers of such stars as Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, The Zac Brown Band, Randy Hauser, Eric Church and more current country
rock hit artists. The band also plays its own material.

Saturday, June 29 will see well known cover band Lounge Puppets perform at 8:00 p.m. "The best of the 80's hair bands and more!" is how the band describes itself. "From Poison anMötley Crüe to Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and more. These boys know how to recapture all of the magic of that great era. Hard music, leather pants and big hair."

Sunday, June 30 starts at 1:30 p.m. with the toe-tapping delights of Jimmy Kilian & Honky Chicago, specializing in Polish polka music. At 6:00 p.m. the Rockaholics will take
the stage and close out the carnival. A leading Rolling Stones tribute band, the Rockaholics also cover the favorites of Aerosmith, Gerry Rafferty, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton and Muddy Waters.

In addition to great live entertainment, the four-day event features thrilling carnival rides, fun games of skill and chance, and a food tent will be offering traditional carnival treats and specialties from local restaurants.
The beer tent will be open as well. A raffle with a $10,000 top prize will also be held.

During the carnival run there will be special ride offers, including a four-day “unlimited rides” mega-pass, available for $45 through June 25 ($55 after that).

Carnival hours are 6:00 to 11:00 p.m. Thursday, 6:00 p.m. to

midnight Friday, 5:00 p.m. to midnight Saturday, and noon to 10:00 p.m. Sunday.
