Saturday Evening Rain Cools Festival Crowd But Doesn’t Dampen Patriotic Spirit

A late Saturday evening rain slightly dampened the Red, White & Blue Festival crowds but not their patriotic spirit or their hunger for a good time.
“The crowd stayed during the rain and when it stopped people started standing in line for food,” said festival director Sherry Bridges. “The carnival provided rides and the fireworks went off as planned.”
Bridges said good crowds attended the festival each day owing to the number of new events.
The carnival by Steel Horse Midway Attractions got a lot of positive comments from the crown, Bridges said, “They brought a lot of new rides that we hadn’t had before including a 50’ ferris wheel.”
During the opening evening’s events Bella Riley, daughter of John & Mendy Riley was named this year’s Red, White & Blue Festival Princess and Jude Howard, son of Jessica Luedeman was named the Festival Prince.
First runners-up were Conner Hall and Olivia Justice; second runners up were Noah Brown and Gabriela Jamison.
Lifetime local resident, Sgt. John L. Nehrt, a 92-year-old US Army veteran of World War II, was honored by the festival and the National Guard Color Guard during opening ceremonies.
Marion Gill reported there were 105 units participating in Saturday’s annual parade.
Parade winners included: Float, Seymour VFW Post 125; Marching Unit, Crothersville Boy Scout Troop and Cub Scout Pack 522; Commercial Unit, Jackson-Washington Fire Department; Animal Unit, Jackson County Sheriff’s Posse; Best 4-wheeler, Jerry Sawyer’s 2018 Polaris Slingshot; Antique Car or Truck, Shannon Foist’s 1953 Ford F-100; Horse Hitch Team, James & Sandra Caudill Farms; Antique Tractor, 1944 C Allis Chalmers owned by Allen & Chanda Seal.

Annual Fireworks Display & Celebration June 29 In Austin

Everyone is invited to attend the Austin Fireworks display on Friday night, June 29, on the grounds of Austin High School/Middle School. The event is traditionally held the Friday before July 4th, giving families and friends a chance to celebrate Independence Day a little early, according to Melissa Turner, spokesperson for Austin Mayor Dillo Bush.
Several generous donors help to make this event possible each year and several booths will be set up by selected, non-profit groups and school related organizations, she said.
Food booths will be set up by the Austin Volunteer Fire Department, Austin Lions Club, and the Psi Iota Xi Sorority. All booths will open by 6 p.m. on the east side of the school building.
Any vendors interested in setting up a booth must contact the Mayor’s office to complete an entry form, Turner said.
Free entertainment will fill the hours prior to the fireworks. The music lineup is planned by Ray Bowling and will include bands Redemptions Cross, Hewitt & Fink, Lonesome Crow Acoustic Show, On the House, and The Fabulous Hickbilly’s.
“Those planning to attend are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the fireworks comfortably,” said Turner.
Parking will be available in front of the school building and on the south side of the gym located at the elementary schools. Some parking will be available on the east side of the complex.
For more information or to obtain a booth registration, contact the Mayor’s office at 812-794-6646.
