The 2018 Fourth Fest Celebration, in downtown Greenville, on Saturday, June 30, promises to be the best one yet.
The event will begin with a unique parade in the afternoon, and then music until midnight.
Fourth Fest takes place on the historic and beautiful downtown Greenville square.
The 1:30 p.m. parade has the unique theme of super heroes and princesses. Children are especially encouraged to dress as a princess or their favorite super hero. Adults are welcome as long as they dress in accordance with the theme.
Plans are for some actual super heroes to be at the parade.
The music begins at 3 p.m. on the courthouse grounds with the Greenville Municipal Band.
At 4 p.m., the Chapman Brothers Band will play country-rock music.
Last year’s Fourth Fest/Bond County Bicentennial event featured an Air Force band and a different one will be featured this year.
Hot Brass, a 10-piece group utilizing vocals, drums, bass and guitars will present a powerful delivery of popular music with an emphasis on horns and brass plus patriotic selections. Hot Brass hits the stage at 5:30 p.m.
The Kentucky Headhunters have been playing their rollicking style of country music for several decades and will play Fourth Fest at 7:30 p.m. The band’s signature song is the big hit “Dumas Walker.”
A fireworks display is scheduled after the Kentucky Headhunters show about 9:30 P.M. This year the fireworks will be fired from the Greenville University gullies, northeast of the square.
Post-party music, after the fireworks, will feature Silver Bullet, a Bob Seger tribute band from St. Louis. Plus, the SwampDaddies will perform in front of the main stage between bands to provide continuous music all day long. All stage acts will perform on the Bradford National Bank Main Stage.
Fourth Fest will once again have a children’s area with inflatables and an appearance by the Bubble Bus.
All musical entertainment is free.
