The 13th Annual Kamm Island Fest took place on Wednesday, July 20th this year with Lawson-Fisher Associates as a corporate sponsor. In spite of the high temperatures, the Kamm Island Fest was a resounding success. This unique 21 and over event, hosted by the Mishawaka Business Association on Kamm Island Park along Mishawaka’s Riverwalk, attracted several thousand people yet again!
Kamm Island Fest not only provides the entertainment and amenities you would expect for a community event, but a whole lot more. There was a classic car show, a bike show, an art show tent, and the bands Blammo and Sandbar Bums played for a great crowd! One tradition everyone appreciated was the return of the Caledonia Kilty Pipe Band.
Everybody seems to get hungry on the island, which is great because the Mishawaka Business Association partners with several local restaurants to provide food stands including Lincolnway Café, Upper Crust, Smith’s Downtown, Treehouse Shine Bar, Bonnie Doons, and more. It’s a fantastic way for visitors of Kamm Island Fest to check out what great places they can dine at the rest of the year.
The City of Mishawaka plays a major role in Kamm Island Fest as well, with the cooperation of the Parks Department, Central Services, and the Mishawaka Police Department among others. Additionally, high school football players and members of the Mayor’s Youth Council from Mishawaka, Marian, and Penn high schools do a fantastic job of helping set up and clean up for the event. Lawson-Fisher Associates is proud to continue our support!
