Carnival coming to town for Jubilee celebration

Heart of America Shows will be rolling into town June 28 with special attractions and new rides for all ages. This year the carnival excitement will take place behind the show barn in Richards Park. The Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the annual July Jubilee Parade scheduled for Saturday, July 1. This year’s theme for the July Jubilee parade is “Tour of the Twentieth Century.” In conjunction with the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the McCulloch County Courthouse, the Chamber is asking for parade entries that feature items such as historical farm equipment, horse drawn carriages and buggies, classic automobiles, trucks, bicycles, roller skates, stilts, unicycles and any type of motorized contraption that came to be in the 20th century. These items will be on display around the courthouse square immediately following the parade. Parade participants can enter any type of float in the parade; however, anyone who has not decided on a theme might consider anything historical and unique. To receive an entry form, contact the Chamber at 597-3491 or at 101 East First Street. Deadline for parade entries is June 27. A complete parade listing will be published in the Brady Standard-Herald and everyone is encouraged to have their radios handy so that they can hear a detailed description on each entry. At 9 p.m. on July 1, the entertainment will shift to the G. Rollie White Complex where boot-scooters will get the opportunity to dance to the sound of R.U. Redy. Tickets will go on sale June 26 at the Chamber of Commerce office and they are $7 in advance and $8 at the gate. R.U. Redy, a six-member band from San Angelo, plays a variety of music from top 40 country with a taste of rock and roll as well at top pop. “This is an energetic band with a flair for crowd pleasin’ music,” said chamber executive vice president DeLaine Poe. “The crowd is guaranteed a grand time in the Heart of Texas.” A state-of-the-art fire works display and a night of family fun will take place at the Brady Lake on July 2. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. everyone is invited to a free watermelon feast sponsored by James Long Real Estate, Moore’s Texaco, Super S, State Farm Insurance and Texas Corral. There will be numerous games for young and old alike including a water balloon toss and old fashioned sack races. The Heart of Texas Jubilee Band will be playing for the crowd’s entertainment during the festivities. At 9:30 party goers can grab a seat and prepare for a breathtaking display of color and beauty as the Heart of Texas Fireworks Display takes off. Zambelli Internationale, the first family of fireworks, is the oldest and largest American firm of both manufacturing and displaying fireworks. Their accomplishments include Presidential Inaugurations, the National Victory Celebration for the troops of Desert Storm and the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
