Nearly five months after the 4&20 Blackbird Festival rocked downtown Weed, the much anticipated street clock was installed last week in front of Radiostar Studios.

Purchased with proceeds from the event, Radiostar owner Sylvia Massy Shivy said she is excited the clock arrived in time for Christmas. Though currently there is no power connected to it, the clock will soon be operational, she said.

Plans are already underway for next year’s event, said Glenn Sawyer, founder of Mongo Party, the non-profit that sponsored the festival. The date has been set for Saturday, Aug. 4.

Massy Shivy and Sawyer thanked a long list of people and organizations who helped make the downtown clock a reality, including Main Street Pride, the Weed Chamber of Commerce, Stephanie Shaver and Janelle Boatright of Blackbird Events, Joel Rekiel of Mongo Party, Ida Moody, Pegasus Sound, the Weed Revitalization Coalition, the City of Weed, Black Butte Saloon, Cedar Lanes, Papa’s Place, all the volunteers, the Radiostar staff and the bands who volunteered their time to make the Festival a success.
