POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – The Pound Ridge Daily Voice is taking a look back on the town’s Top 10 stories of 2012 .
The second annual Pound Ridge Harvest Festival drew thousands of people on Oct. 13, thanks in part to its music bill, which included the iconic ‘90s alt-rock band, Toad the Wet Sprocket. http://poundridge.dailyvoice.com/events/pound-ridge-harvest-festival-rocks-town
The event was sponsored by the Pound Ridge Partnership – an organization formed three years ago with the goal to help beautify the Scotts Corner business district. Money raised by the festival will help the partnership to undertake an array of beautification projects throughout the area.
This festival featured food provided by all the restaurants throughout Scotts Corners, games for the kids, demonstrations by the fire department, as well as both beer and root beer gardens. Besides Toad the Wet Sprocket, musical performances also featured the Fox Lane Rock Ensemble.
Ali Boak, a found member of the Pound Ridge Partnership, said having Toad the Wet Sprocket on the bill helped the festival surpass the 2011 attendance figures of 2,000.
“I see so many faces here from around the community, but I just met a couple of women who came up all the way from New York City just to see Toad the Wet Sprocket,” she said.
