Livin’ & Lovin’ Country Dance Party will bring top country artists to Plattsburgh

— “Once your in, your in and vice versa,” said Wiggins. “For insurance reasons we can’t have people leaving and coming back say if they leave and drink.”

The event not only promises to be full of non-stop musical entertainment but for the kids there will be bouncy houses plus indoor and outdoor activities. Kids age 6 and under get in free but for $5 can get a wristband for all the games and bouncy houses. The $5 will be donated the American Cancer Society.

A Race Car donated by Airborne Speedway will also be raffled off in a silent auction. Airborne first donated the car for another raffle and it was won by Jim Cringe, sales manager for Plattsburgh Distributing. Wiggins said Cringe turned around and will be re-donating the stock car for another silent auction. Proceeds from the stock car silent auction will also be donated to the North Country Cancer Fund.

Beginning at noon, guests can sign up for the Mechanical Bull Championships which will be held at 6 p.m.

“This show will have a little something for everyone with the mechanical bull, bouncy houses for the kids, great music and just so much more throughout the day,” said Wiggins.

The event is one of many upcoming events that were put together by Entertainment Trading Co. and Plattsburgh Live. Plattsburgh Live is a website geared to promoting entertainment in Plattsburgh. Wiggins is joined by his brother and Vice President Jarett Wiggins of Morrisonville. The duo launched the site in April after putting it together for about six months.

“My brother went to college here at Clinton Community College, I’ve been running ETC for about 15 years and he was telling me we should bring the same model for a guide in Plattsburgh area,” said Wiggins. “There really is a lot to do in the area and we want people to check out our website and even submit their events to show how much is really going on here.”

Plattsburgh Live will also be bringing Bret Michaels, Glam metal, hard rock, country rock, and the 1980’s band Poison to the Crete Center. Michaels will play on Aug. 14.

According to Wiggins there are many projects he and Jarret are in the process of securing but at this time mum is the word.

“I can say the word, Stained, and that’s it for now,” said Wiggins.
