Calling all CLASSIC CAR and TRUCK OWNERS…
join us for this 2-day “Family-Friendly” Festival
VETERANS and ACTIVE MILITARY GET IN FREE
Preparations are in full force for the Clinton Lion’s Club patriotic Red, White and Blue Festival to be held in the historic town of Clinton for a two-day celebration on Friday and Saturday, July 4 and 5.
The patriotic family-friendly event, to be held at the American Legion Hall Fairgrounds, promises something for everyone, says Lewis Savoie, chairman.
Savoie says the Lions Club is continuously updating the event schedule, which includes a two-day softball tournament, BBQ cooking contest, blueberry cooking contest, pancake breakfast, classic car and truck show, craft booths, Laser Tag and 5-K Run-Walk, Gospel Tent, Games, and craft and food vendors.
Savoie says, “We are asking classic car and truck owners to join us for the festival, and showcase their rides.” Classic Car and Truck Clubs interested in joining the festival should call Savoie at (225) 281-3144 to reserve the proper amount of space to showcase their rides.
There will also be the Eddie Hopper Greased Watermelon Relay Race, a musical tribute to our veterans and active military members, a patriotic fireworks program, golf cart parade, pony rides and other fun activities for the kids, said Savoie.
Gospel music will be featured all day. There will also be groups performing country, blue grass and rock and roll music on the main stage for both days. Musical groups set to perform are We Jam, Island Fever, Lynda Dupry’s Patriotic Tribute, Ann Vedrin’s Cajun Fiddler Extravaganza, Bob Browning Country Music Show, and the sweet sounds of Last Mission, the DCI Band, the Angola Band and several local church choirs.
Combine all of this with fun-filled activities and this festival promises to be a major attraction for the state, says Savoie.
Savoie says the best way to enjoy this festival is to bring your lawn chairs and tents. All military and veterans are special guests and are particularly invited.
Savoie says no coolers, food or drinks are allowed in the parks as local restaurants and vendors will be selling food.
