Madison Doyle, story:
The Big Brownsville Bash is scheduled to start this Thursday and is planned to go through Saturday night in Brownsville and the surrounding area.
The county's newest festival, organized by the Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce is planned to become an annual event and will feature the following events and attractions:
Parking for the carnival will be at Houchin Ferry Road at the side of Edmonson County High School. Activities will also be held at the Edmonson County Public Library on Thursday and Friday, which include a Farmer's Market and Dunk Tank, sponsored by ECHS Soccer. 4-H Rally Days will be held inside the Library for 4-H members.
Saturday will see a busy day on the square with all sorts of activities and events for all ages with two different sessions of the carnival: one will begin at noon on Saturday until 4pm, then an evening session from 5pm to 11pm. Any carnival armbands purchased for the Saturday day session will expire at 4pm. You'll need a new armband if you also want unlimited rides on Saturday night.
The Chamber has partnered with corporate sponsors Rafferty's, Patton Funeral Home, Bank of Edmonson County, A Plus Family Healthcare, Edmonson County Tourism, and Alford's Pharmacy to make the event possible.
"Our Chamber Board has been working non-stop since mid-March to organize this festival," said Chamber Board President Darren Doyle. "The positive feedback we've received from our Chamber members and our local community has been overwhelming and we're certain we're going to see a huge draw at what we feel can be something great here for years to come."
