As part of the month long celebration of the arts Newtown, Connecticut's third Rooster Ball was held September 18, 2015. The weather cooperated and it was a spectacular night to dance under the big tent on the grounds of Fairfield Hills. The Rooster Ball proceeded the following day's kickoff of the Newtown Arts Festival.  Making the night extra special was the introduction of the stainless steel sculpture, Mechanical Horse created by artist Adrian Landon of Brooklyn, NY. Onlookers were surprised when a button was pushed and the horse majestically began galloping in place. To see the horse in action there is a short iPhone video below photos.

Cocktails were followed by dinner catered by Gallucci's Catering of Danbury, CT. Music was provided by the Eugene Dobb's Nu Cullers Band which has performed as opening acts for Chaka Khan, Cameo, Wilson Pickett, Tower of Power, War, Billy Preston, Chuck Berry and Sister Sledge, among others. The Rooster Ball presented by and a fundraiser for the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission was led by Event Chair Terry Sagedy and his committee, and numerous volunteers. Thanks to all of you! Profits from the sale of photos less shipping and online hosting commission fee will be donated to the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission
