All Roads Will Lead To Marion Monday, July 4th. It is going to be one one of the biggest and best ever to be given in many years.
The fun starts at 8 o'clock on the court square with the High School band assisted by Ray Wilson and the boys of his band.
There will be hand sawing contests and nail driving contests, and for the women, egg contests, and cracker eating contests for children, and most of all let's not forget the babies. There will be a baby buggy rolling contest and the mother must bring long the babies in their buggies and strollers and enter the fun.
From there the fun moves to Grady Field where there will be many games and plenty to eat. Barbecue, hot dogs, hamburgers, soft drinks and ice cream and other goodies will be available.
Boxing matches will be one of the main featues of the morning. Paul Woodall has promised plenty of action for all attending.
At 2:00 p.m. there will be a softball game between the Marion Globetrotters and Frances. This is expected to be one of the hottest games of the year.
The bands will give another concert at 7:00 o'clock which will be worth traveling miles to hear.
There will be ponies to ride for the kiddies, the well-known Bingo game, and other games where the older people may enjoy themselves.
The most complete arrangements of fireworks ever to be displayed in Western Kentucky will start at 9:00 o'clock sharp, so let nothing keep you away from Marion on this glorious 4th of July.
My thoughts: These wonderful old days of community fun gatherings are gone, for now nearly everyone leaves town to find entertainment somewhere else, and it's just another empty day as usual.
