WINSLOW, Ariz. - The annual Standin' on the Corner event turned out to be another fun, two-day musical event. The festival was held Sept. 28-29.

Organizers of the event reported attendance was as high as last year's event and probably a little greater. This year as opposed to the past 13 years, admission was not free for adults, but was pegged at $2 per day. The extra money will go toward the building fund for a permanent stage.

Lights, dust rising, music, dancing, kids playing and plenty of socializing by all could be seen both days. The closing band was the "Sheagles," a seven member all female Eagles Tribute Band out of Nashville, Tenn. The other closing band was "A Boy named Sioux," a four member outlaw country and southern band, from Phoenix.

The line-up for Sept. 28 featured eight performances including '70s rock group Mantis and the Tommy Dukes Blues Band. All three groups hailed from Winslow at one time or another. The line-up Sept. 29 numbered nine events including an auction, which included a guitar signed by the Eagles Band.

There was a beer garden and a children's play area. Many of the vendors provided food and snacks while others offered jewelry, souvenirs, hats, clothes, marshmallow guns and other "essentials."

The yearly event is produced locally by the Standin' On The Corner Foundation of Winslow Ariz.
