Music Festival Sounds Sweet to New Baltimore Businessman
Little Camille's By the Bay owner Mark Miller told New Baltimore City Council of his plans for the summer festival during the Monday night meeting.
Plans for a music festival in downtown New Baltimore are getting fine-tuned.
Little Camille's By the Bay owner Mark Miller told City Council Monday night he is organizing the event scheduled for Aug. 10 in Burke Park. The council agreed to accept the concept, provided he gives specifics once they're available.
The concert will have a mix of jazz, blues and grass music that the public will attend for an undetermined admission fee. Organizers are in the early stages of working with a charity and sponsors for partnerships, Miller said.
He says the event budget is anticipated to be $10,000-$15,000.
Councilman Jeffrey Christie noted that attendees could come by land and water, with the public boat docks expected to be in use by then.
Councilwoman Florence Hayman told Miller she was excited about the event.
"I applaud you for bringing something new to the community," she said.
