RockinView – THANK YOU!

By Chris Murphy

It takes an amazing team to bring Rockin’ Holiday to Modesto each season and we could not do this with out the amazing teamwork of our supporters and sponsors. Working together, we are creating new spaces, events and activities that make Modesto vibrant and interesting.

Thank you Sierra Pacific Warehouse Group, ModestoView, Modesto Toyota, Brian Friend/ Laser Voodoo, the Modesto Downtown Improvement District and Collins Electrical Company for the amazing support and creativity over all these years.

There is a big crew that makes each night come to life and huge thanks to our Rockin Sponsors: Ceres Pipe & Metal, Prime Shine Car Wash, Roberts Auto Sales, Downtown Modesto Partnership (DOMO), Fores & Macko, A Professional Law Corporation, the City of Modesto – City Hall Modesto Confidential and Management Association Peace of Mind Pest Control and Home Inspection, Ralston’s Goat, Fuzio Universal Bistro, Brenden Theatres Modesto 18, the Patch Crew, Modesto Area Music Association – MAMA, Modesto Police Officers Association and cheerleaders Sammy D and T for the amazing support that makes things real.

Thank you to our Rockin’ Santa, Elves, North Pole Staff, and sound crews and the bands that played. Thank you Rockin Santas Mike Allsup & Steve Waldron, North Pole production team Jennifer Allsup, Jonah and Siri Grane, Eli Allsup, Krista Lyons and Cassy Westcott and the amazing sound skills of Mark Oseau and Ryan Irons and the Modesto City Staff that made it possible to do this in 10th St Plaza.

We made it though the wind storm and rebuilt the tree and delivered classic Modesto holiday fun, snow, music, and excitement to our community and put smiles on many faces. The Rockin Tree and North Pole decorations will be up until Jan 4,so enjoy the nightly shows and we will be back in December 2018! Hopefully you will like our twinkly parting gift to downtown.
Thank you Modesto.
