For the first time in 4 decades, we had to cancel The Bright Community Festival and The Bright Parade due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns. This is a great disappointment to the members of the Fire Department and the Bright Community. With growing COVID concerns, and the Governor’s decision to extend restrictions for safety, we feel it is the right thing to do for the health and safety of our community.
We searched for a way to connect with the community and try to provide an opportunity for families to still enjoy the Saturday evening we would normally be at the festival, while staying safe. We are pleased to announce the first Bright Virtual Festival. With the help of a few community members, SOL Records and NOW Broadcasting, we were able to find the sponsorships to allow for a Live Streaming Event of The Danny Frazier Band that will take place on Saturday, July 25th from 8 to 11 pm. A link to BrightFestival.Live will be on The Bright Community Festival Facebook page for access as the Music starts. We will be recognizing our many great sponsors of this event, as we could not have done this event without their generous support.
The Split-the-Pot and Vacation raffles are continuing as reported earlier. We will have members of the Fire Department at the Firehouse Station 1, off Saltfork, to hand out and accept raffles tickets and donations during the Live Broadcast. We will update on the Split the Pot running total throughout the Live Broadcast. The winners for the Split the Pot and Vacation Raffles will be drawn on Sunday July 26, 2020 at 1:00PM at Station 1. We will live broadcast the drawings on The Bright Community Festival Facebook page as well. Thank you to everyone who have returned tickets. We would like to ask those who have not returned them, please consider doing so. If anyone would like tickets, please stop by the firehouse on Salt Fork or give us a call at 812-637-3473.
While this year’s Festival will not be going on as planned, we hope that you will watch this Live Streaming Event and take the opportunity to enjoy the evening safely with family and friends. There will also be links during the Live Streaming to give donations to help us recoup some of the fundraising the Fire Department still needs. Thank you in advance for your continued support and any donation is welcomed and greatly appreciated.
