SPRINGFIELD — The holiday weekend provided local residents with a variety of activities at Rock the Docks, which took place July 5-7 along the north shore of Springfield Lake.

Cameron Walder, 8, of Springfield, enjoyed a ride in a pontoon boat during the festival on July 5, shown at right top.

Others had the chance to enjoy music, such as the sounds of Marshall Law, who are pictured above performing at the Vincent J. Mealy Memorial Gazebo. Robert Jackson and Chris Morris, both of Springfield, were inspired to kick up their heels during the band’s performance, as shown at right bottom.

The festival also featured carnival rides and games, boat races and fireworks.
