Festival committee receives approval of street, park closures


This year’s Crothersville Red, White and Blue Festival is set for June 10 to 12.

During Tuesday night’s Crothersville Town Council meeting, festival organizer Erica Gorbett received unanimous approval to close certain streets.

From 9 a.m. June 10 to midnight June 12, Preston Street between Main and Oak streets, East Howard Street between Jackson and Preston streets and the front portion of Oak Street near the school’s auxiliary gymnasium will all be closed since they are a part of the festival grounds.

For the parade June 12, Bard Street will be closed starting at 9 a.m. along with a portion of East Street for parade lineup overflow.

Once the parade begins, the route will go from Bard Street to Armstrong Street (U.S.) to Moore Street to Preston Street.

The festival will conclude with a fireworks show June 12 at Bard Street Park, and Gorbett said the park along with Bard, Oak and East streets will close at 9 p.m. to allow for setup of the show.

The council also gave Gorbett approval to use extra barriers owned by the town in certain areas of the festival grounds, including on Howard Street near the Baptist church and off of Main Street near the school bus barn.
