The events will be at the band shell except in the case of bad weather, in which the entertainment will be at the Pavilion.

Rotary Club of Brazil Entertainment Chair Dave Crooks said this has been a busy time as free entertainment acts are being lined up, and additional local talent should also be added soon.

“We have recruited several bands that appeal to music fans across the Country as well as some local fan favorites,” Crooks said. “We also hope to have the carnival rides return to Brazil in 2021, and discussions on bringing the carnival company back are in the works. And if the carnival is confirmed, we will invite Northview Marching Knights and local dance studios to perform on June 29 and 30, too.”

Musician Gary West will make an appearance this morning, March 26 on 95.9 The Legend WVIG to discuss the upcoming show with Barry Kent.

Also, Rotary Club President Rob Dispennett said: “We are excited to be bringing back the Golf Scramble, which was very successful, and we hope to increase the number of our very popular local nonprofit food vendors, which will be open July 2-4.”
