A local music store is gearing up for its annual Springfest on Saturday.  There will be live local music with a new band taking the stage each hour, drawings, giveaways and snacks available all day from 10am to 5pm at Halpin Music on the Homer Adams Parkway in Alton.  This is the store’s way to say thank you to the community for decades of support.

Co-owner Mark Landon says they will be giving away a lot of prizes.

The business was originally established as the F.W. Davis Piano Co. back in 1895.  Its current name was derived when Clem and Ann Halpin purchased the former Gould Music in the spring of 1961.  Halpin Music has been under the ownership of Mark Landon and Brock Hermens since 1995.
