Start Of "Rockport Days" Pictures.
On September 17, 2016 at 10:00 am, the Rockport Days annual event was in its' second
day of community activity. On the sixteenth of September, at daylight, the Rockport
Community Yard Sale kicked off the "Rockport Days 2016" event. For most of the Friday
morning, there was a constant flow of buyers and lookers to keep the venders busy and
anxious to return next year.
On Saturday, the Community Center Building was open and the small kitchen was used
to prepare food and drinks for the visitors throughout the day. The shelter and porch
area was a gathering and meeting place for area residents and
"Out of Towner's" to meet and mingle. That area stayed crowded all day long.
The children and the young at heart had the full run of the playground and there was
a constant flow of activity over the entire playground with the "Monkey Bars" gathering
the most participants. The ball field was a staging area for the "Antique Car Show"
as well as a staging area for the parade units. The main event event of the day was
a parade that started in the mid-afternoon.
Plans are already underway for the next year's event and it is developing with the
hope and intent of it being bigger and better than this year's event. Will try to
keep you updated on the plans for "Rockport Days" 2017. Hope to see you there.
Wishing you the best for the year, 2017..
