Rock of Ages is making a return visit to the Manteca Pumpkin Fair Main Stage this Saturday from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Free entertainment on both the Main Stage and Community Stage are part of the offerings at the 28th annual Sunrise Kiwanis Manteca Pumpkin Fair this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in downtown Manteca.

The two-day event includes arts, crafts, other items for sale, food, a car show, free kids games, kids rides, tractor show, commercial booths, and pumpkins for sale.

 Rock of Ages features Mario Ortega on drums, Kevin Jachetta on keyboards, and Dylan Caligiuri on guitar, all of whom are amazing vocalists as well. Shelly Jachetta joins the group with her vocals to create a combo that provides a unique, talented, rock-your-socks-off show.

The classic rock band delivers everything from the Beatles, Bob Seger, Led Zeppelin, and Elton John to Janis Joplin, Loverboy, Heart, Stevie Nicks, and Blondie. 

The Sonora-based band just completed an engamenet at the San Joaquin County Fair. Their next show after the Pumpkin Fair is the Jackson Rancheria Casino for a Halloween party on Oct. 31.
