Altavista On Track (AOT) continues to release details of the fast-approaching Uncle Billy’s BBQ, Bourbon & Beer Festival.

The event will be hosted for the first time ever in English Park on October 2 from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. According to AOT, ticket sales jumped shortly before the group’s September 9 meeting. 

AOT is actively recruiting volunteers for the event. The festival’s rain date is October 9. The boat ramp and park will be closed during the festival.

More information about tickets, or signing up to volunteer at the festival, is available online at:

During the festival, there will also be a classic car show on the overlook side of the Route 29 bridge.

Aside from several internal matters, including plans for the Giblet Jog and discussion of AOT’s website, AOT also provided an update on its annual ornament sale. 

150 ornaments with a print of the Vista Theatre on them have been ordered and will be sold for $10 each. They were designed by the William Kendrick Company.
