Celebrate Construct: A summer evening for kids of all ages

There will be something for everyone starting with games and entertainment for the kids, and four bands onstage ending with a spectacular fireworks.

Great Barrington — On Saturday, July 20, you will want to be at Ski Butternut for a fantastic celebration of Construct’s 50th birthday.

There will be something for everyone starting with games and entertainment for the kids, and four bands onstage ending with a spectacular fireworks. Pointed Man Band (“Music for both the grown and still growing”) from Portland, Oregon, will start the evening off at 6:30 p.m. followed by the Skeeters and the the Transmitters (two of everyone’s favorite bands), ending with the very popular Berkshire Bateria ( “a lively troupe of musicians who perform hot samba rhythms on traditional Brazilian percussive instruments”).

No need to eat early or pack a picnic—the food trucks are coming! For the adults, Ski Butternut will be offering wine and beer.

Of course, no birthday is complete without a cake and presents. The first- and second-graders at Project Connection summer program have been working hard to create a very special huge cake to be presented to the crowd along with a round of “Happy Birthday” just before the fireworks.

Throughout the evening, everyone over 18 will be invited to participate in a free raffle for “presents” that will include two tickets to “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, a day of indulgence at Canyon Ranch and tickets to Ski Butternut.

Come early to get your spot on the mountain. Bring your family and friends for a relaxed and fun evening celebrating summer and the important role Construct has played in the lives of all Berkshire residents, both full- and part-time, for 50 years.

The gates open at 5 p.m. Saturday, July 20, at Ski Butternut. The entrance price is $20 per vehicle.
