Advance sale tickets available for Fourth of July celebration

Friday, June 12, 2009

The Brazil Rotary Club is now gearing up for its 74th Fourth of July celebration and has started selling advance tickets.

The weeklong event will take place June 27-July 4, and will feature a carnival and midway, along with free entertainment, which will take place nightly at the Forest Park Band Shell and Pavilion.

Advance sale tickets to ride all carnival rides at this year's celebration at Forest Park are now on sale at all Brazil and Clay City banks and Riddell National Bank on State Road 46 in Terre Haute.

Cost is $15 per bracelet ticket. Tickets purchased in advance will be exchanged for a bracelet good for one day to ride all rides.

The Brazil Rotary Club and Burton Bros. Amusement will honor bracelet tickets all day from Saturday, June 27, through Saturday, July 4. Bracelet tickets will be on sale until noon, June 26, or while supplies last.

There is a $3 savings per ticket if those interested purchase bracelet tickets in advance of the event. Bracelets will cost $18 if purchased at ticket booths during the weeklong event. Individual ride tickets will be sold only while the carnival is open.

There will also be door prizes awarded every night of the event and the grand prize of $10,000 will be awarded at 11 p.m., July 4. Advance sale raffle tickets are also now on sale through Rotary members. Donations are $5 for one chance, $10 for three chances and $20 for six chances.

The event is the non-profit rotary club's only fundraiser of the year and helps raise funds for scholarships and community improvement projects. More information and a schedule of daily events and free entertainment may be obtained at www.brazilrotary.org.

The celebration will officially begin Saturday, June 27, with a 5K walk/run, sponsored by the YMCA of Clay County.

The walk/run will begin at 7:30 a.m.

The weeklong festivities will culminate with a fireworks show with musical accompaniment provided by The Crock, 92.7-FM.
