Rockin' 70s Harvest Hoedown returns with Judd Hoos, FireHouse, Mud Run, more
Belfield’s Rockin’ 70s Harvest Hoedown is back for a weekend-long array of festivities, kicking off Friday with band performances by the Judd Hoos and Firehouse along with a gun raffle.
The ‘70s were all about bell-bottoms, the rising disco and cultural change. This weekend, the city of Belfield relives that tumultuous decade with its Rockin’ 70s Harvest Hoedown, including performances by the Judd Hoos and FireHouse.
With big hair and tie-dye inspiration, there's bound to be a little dosey doe from the line-up of events. Beginning at noon until 6 p.m. Friday, the festivities will kick off with open swimming at the Belfield Pool. At Burly’s Roughrider Bar and Steakhouse, bouncy castles and water slides will commence from 1 to 9 p.m. with beer gardens opening at 5 p.m.
Nearing sunset, the Judd Hoos, an American rock band based out of Sturgis, S.D., will take the stage from 7:30 to 9 p.m. outside of Burly’s Roughrider Bar and Steakhouse. A gun raffle by the Belfield Sportsman Club (BSC) will follow at 9:30 p.m. Then at 10:15 p.m., FireHouse — the 1990s American rock band known for hits such as “Love of a Lifetime” — will close out the evening.
Belfield’s Park and Recreation Board helped facilitate this annual event and are hopeful for another successful hoedown, Park Board President Kevin Anderson said.
“We are really excited about the bands that are performing this year,” Anderson said. “Last year was a good turn out but we’re really hoping that this year will be even better. Everyone always looks forward to this event. It’s the last chance to unwind before the school year starts.”
