The parking lot in front of RAD Brothers restaurant was the place to be for live music September 7, 2019. The festival marked its third year with a day of live music from noon until midnight.
This year organizers had an emphasis on local featuring more smaller businesses as sponsors. “We love having them on board.
They were just like us three years ago,” Patrick Rdojcic said. The festival offered a little of everything from Orange Snail Brewery, flavour shots, as well as food vendors offering burgers. They donated a portion of the proceeds to Canadian Fallen Firefighters Fund (CFFF), and Firepower for kids, as well as the House of Chords.
Sisterly pride was on display for James Tovell of the Nozmo Kingz. “We all took music lessons growing up, but my brother was the one who could play by ear,” she said. She was there with the entire family, including their father, turning 80 this year. “I like it because it allows the younger people to participate.” the outdoor venue allowed for all ages to attend. House of Chords has a band program that teaches kids how to play in a band. Younger aged bands performed earlier in the afternoon. Other bands performing included The Dad Bods, Gavin McLeod.
The festival has become a way to mark the passage of summer in Milton. Brian Kennelly was invited by his friends. “For the last three years my friends have always said to me to come down to Rad Festival to warm off the summer relaxing,” Kennelly said. “That’s what it is. Having something to look forward to, and we’re going to keep making it bigger, and better. This is our town, we live her and they’re the people that support us.” Radojcic said.
