Fest supports fire-rescue department

Batesville Fire-Rescue Department members are gearing up for their annual SummerFest Friday-Saturday, July 12-13.

Some of the attractions will be bouncy houses and train rides for the kids and pull tabs for adults, reports fest chairman Dave Krause.

A softball tourney kicks off Friday evening (please see box), reports women’s auxiliary President Kim Narwold. More teams may be needed, and persons can contact Jenny Abel at 812-212-1082 for information.

Food and drinks are big fest draws. Friday fish dinners (fried cod, baked beans, cole slaw, chips and drink) will be offered for $8 for both adult and kid meals. “You can purchase a sandwich for $6. With the purchase of a meal, you can get another piece of fish for $5,” Krause reveals.

Saturday’s menu includes a choice of four pieces of chicken or a pork chop, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cole slaw or applesauce and dessert. The cost is $10 for adults or $5 for kids. The youngsters’ meals will “be the same as an adult, but with two pieces of chicken.

“We will also have the concession stand, which includes hamburgers, cheeseburgers, brats and metts.”

Donations of pies, brownies, cookies and cakes are welcome. They can be dropped off at the firehouse or park Saturday morning, he adds.

Participants do not have to preregister for the annual midday parade. They can begin lining up at noon on Columbus Avenue in front of Batesville Intermediate School. Persons should enter from Huntersville Road to avoid traffic congestion.

The parade route: south on Mulberry Street, east on West Pearl Street, south on Main Street, east on Catherine Street and south on Park Avenue to Liberty Park.

Live music will entertain the crowds. On Friday night, The Renegades will take the stage. On Saturday, the city’s own Eureka Band will perform. That evening, Blair Carman & the Belleview Boys, Cincinnati, will present rockabilly, honky-tonk and ‘50s-style rock ‘n’ roll tunes, announces director Mike Kruse of the sponsoring Batesville Memorial Public Library. “It’s a free night out, and there will be a lot of fun music that all ages can enjoy.”
