Last week on August 11th we decided to go see The Toy Factory in Witten Park in the Saxony community. Saxony is located on the far northwest side of Fishers, Indiana almost on the border of Noblesville. This growing area has been having festivals and concerts in Witten Park for the past few years but we have never attended due to our family schedules never coinciding. This past Friday we were finally free. I told the hub to make sure to fill our cooler, I grabbed the chairs and bug repellent and we headed out to join a few family members we were meeting in the park. We got there a little early, because if you haven’t heard of The Toy Factory or heard them play…. They are a pretty big deal locally so it was imperative to secure our spot.
The Toy Factory started out with some Bruno Mars ~ 24k Magic, Marvin Gaye’s ~ Got To Give It Up, threw in some Earth, Wind and Fire ~ Let’s Groove Tonight and then some Nortorious BIG ~ One More Chance, they had me as well as a good part of the crowd on their feet dancing and bobbing to the music. The sky was clear, it wasn’t too hot and despite my sweaty forehead and back, the Toy Factory never ceased to have me popping back out of my fold up chair to dance some more. Even my husband, who never dances in public, had to stand up and dance when The Toy Factory played BBD’s (Bell Biv Devoe’s) ~ Poison. They mixed New School with Old School R&B & Rap, Funk with Rock and I felt like a young girl back in the party days, only we were in a park with families of all ages, colors, and races.
The park was packed that Friday night; people had to sit behind the band just to get close. The Saxony community does a good job of ensuring their attendees have a good time by inviting food trucks; there was even an adult libations truck for those who partake, lining the street behind the park. People were walking around hugging and greeting friends, children were playing in the kid park behind the concert lawn. It is a really very nice scene for couples out on a date, for a girls night out or a guys night out or for families and it was totally FREE.
The Musicians in The Toy Factory band consist of:
So if you like having a good time, want to follow a good band and want to have something fun to do during the week or weekend; check out The Toy Factory on their website http://www.toyfactorylive.com/ where you can find their song list, reviews, contact information and more importantly their schedule.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and videos I shared of my evening. Maybe next year you can join Indy Hip Chic at Witten Park when we go back to see Toy Factory again. We are making this an annual thing.
Love, Hugs & Kiss
