Sponsoring, joining ROTR

Rhythm on the Rails sponsoring and contest opportunities announced by City of Clinton
I’m also very pleased to let you know of the new layout of the festival. Each area of the festival will be designated with a railroad related name – and if the area has been sponsored the sponsors name will also be on the signage for that area."

It’s an exciting day in Clinton, SC as we now have all areas of our festival’s registration open and available. 

Each area of the festival will be designated with a railroad related name – and if the area has been sponsored the sponsors name will also be on the signage for that area. 

The festival areas are as follows. 

Carnival Crossing: Rides will be placed on Broad Street in front of the Municipal Center and will feature a Ferris wheel, giant slide, rock wall, swings, a fun house, trackless train, and turbo tubs this year.  Additionally, rides will be open on Friday from 5-9 and on Saturday from 10 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.! 

Jumping Junction:  The West Main Marking lot will contain an inflatable train, giant slide, and jumping castle.  This area will be open to children throughout the festival. 

BBQ Branch Line Sponsored by CNNGA!! :  East Main Street will be where our BBQ competition will take place this year.  Other food vendors not wishing to participate in the competition will also be set up in this area. 

Rhythm Rail Line:   Musgrove Street from The Depot stage to the back stage we will have placed at the corner of Musgrove and Pitts will be our Rhythm Rail Line this year.  Picnic tables will be located up and down Musgrove as well.  Our musical and other rhythm focused entertainment will take place up and down Rhythm Rail Line.   

Main Line Market Sponsored by the LCWSC:  West Main Street will be the location for our vendors of crafts and other unique items. 

Safety Stop:  Right in front of the Railroad Tracks on Broad Street we will have designated as our safety area.  City public service vehicles including fire truck, police cruisers, and public works vehicles will be set up in this area as well as Laurens County EMS and the Lauren’s County Sheriff’s Office.

Information Station:  The City will have our tents/tables set up in the middle of the intersection of Main and Broad for help with directions, maps, schedules, etc. 

Our scheduled entertainment includes:

Friday night at 6:00 p.m. at The Depot – Smitty and the Jumpstarters

Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. – Welcome and music from students of District 56

11:00-1:30  live at The Depot State – Laurens County’s very own PC Red and Almost Blue Band

At noon the stage  at the corner of Pitts and Musgrove will feature a gospel hour

At 2:00 p.m.  the stage  at the corner of Pitts and Musgrove will feature students from the Dance Shop

Plans are currently being negotiated for our 4:00 o’clock performance

Finally,  Too Much Sylvia will close out our 2016 Festivities at The Depot state from 6-9 Saturday evening. 

If you have any questions or thoughts to add to our planning – be sure to give me a call or send me an email!   

All aboard for fun in Clinton!
