The 2022 Chester Eaglefest is in the books and by all indications it was a huge success. The Eagles had a full slate of fun-filled activities that thrilled attendees all three days.
Back by popular demand were the ever-popular carnival rides provided by Brady's Amusements. Armbands were popular with young riders and the many rides were busy throughout the festival.
The coed volleyball tournament, organized and managed by Stacey Search, was a big hit. The 2022 winner was the team of Travis Shaeber.
The 2022 3-hole washer tournament, organized and managed by Chris Toledo, was won by Chris Kern and Chris Roth.
The popular Eagles Gun Raffle was held Saturday night at 8 p.m. with five prizes given away. Gun winners included Tyler Woods, Ryan Shute, Allen Hester, Greg Amman and Bobby Sheets. Scott Pickett was the winner of the Chester Eagles Auxiliary Lotto Tree drawing.
There was great music all three nights with Ian Ferguson performing inside the Eagles Hall Thursday. On Friday the OG's performed on the outside stage. Then on Saturday Broedy Fricke took the stage, followed by the Downstate Music Company, who played until a huge rain and lightning storm forced the outdoor concert to be canceled.
The Chester Eagles are already beginning to discuss plans for Eaglefest 2023 and hope to make it even bigger and better. Festivalgoers had nothing but great things to say about the event and were thrilled with the offerings this year.
The Eagles are very grateful for the 35 "Gold" Sponsors ($100) and the additional nine "Silver" Sponsors ($50) of this year's Eaglefest.
