SPRINGFIELD — Rock the Docks returned to Springfield Lake Park Aug. 1-3 to offer area residents a variety of fun, food and live music.

The annual event included carnival fare from a variety of vendors, some of which are shown at top.

Children were also able to have some fun aboard some unique rides, such as the one pictured at right top.

Other activities included a giant plastic bubble in which children were able to roll around in. Shown at right bottom is 6-year-old Charles Beck, a first-grader at Uniontown Elementary School.

Visitors to the event also were entertained by live performances at the Vincent J. Mealy Memorial Gazebo. Shown below is the 7th Street Band entertaining the crowd.

Area residents also enjoyed pontoon boat rides on the lake and fireworks Aug. 2.
