Rock N’ Roots Revival

“Back in 2015, Redding Historical Society & Town Historian Charley Couch had an idea. Why not have a July 4th celebration in town, complete with music, fireworks, games and tasty add ons like a pie tasting contest for the ages, a notion not thought possible given just how difficult it would be to pull it off. Well, the esteemed Mr. C made it happen and now, at the age of 5, Charley’s Rock’n Roots Revival 2019 jumped off on Saturday, June 29 and was a success.  CC would be proud without question.”
