This year’s Bond County Fourth Fest in downtown Greenville is about three weeks away.
The event will be two days for the first time, Friday, July 2 and Saturday, July 3.
Rex Catron, chairman of the Fourth Fest Committee, said there is a way individuals can financially help the event. He said the “40 For The Fourth” campaign asks citizens to donate $40 toward the event to offset costs. You can send checks to the Bond County Independence Day Festival Association (or BCIDFA) at P.O. Box 584 in Greenville. Catron said the donations are important as it costs a lot to put on the event and this year it’s a two-day festival.
