The Bunkie Chamber
"Lots of things going on with the chamber. The
Krewe of Cronus Ball was a complete success and loads of fun. If someone
didn't have a good time, it was because they weren't there. The Debs were
beautiful and Barry Badon and the Bayou Boys never stopped. It was four
hours of continuous music and they were great. If you enjoyed their
music, you will be able to hear them again at the Corn Festival on
Saturday night from 8:00 to 12:00 and they won't stop. Jill Tate was our
photographer and you can go to her website louisianaspirit.com to see
pictures and also Barry's website barrybadon.com. Thanks to Margie
The Louisiana Corn Festival Queen's Pageant will be held April 22,
2006. It will start at 9:00 AM with the little boys going first,
then seven little girls division will follow. The Junior, Teen, Miss and
Ms. divisions will have interviews in the afternoon and then evening gown
competition will start at 6:00 P M. We have opened the younger divisions
to statewide and the older divisions will be Avoyelles Parish and all
parishes touching Avoyelles.
The 5K Run will also take place April 22, 2006. There are 5 age
divisions and there will be male and female categories. Registration fees
are $15.00, with cash prizes. There will be a Corn Festival T-shirt for
each participate. Contact the chamber for more info 346-2575.
The winner of our T-shirt design contest is Joe Merrick. Joe is
the artist, who has painted the beautiful murals around town. It is really
a great shirt. There should be plenty of shirts but please buy them
early. We had limited our shirts last year because of the excess amount,
we were having left over. The Corn Festival depends on sponsorships and
the money we make on our T-shirts so we really can't afford to pay for
these shirts and have a lot left over.
The Louisiana Corn Festival will be June 9, 10, & 11th. We have
changed up the dates on a few of the events. It should be a fun filled
weekend. We will have our search for the "Corn Idol" and this will be the
second year for the Children's Parade so start getting ideas. We had some
great entries last year. The Festival Schedules will be out as soon as we
finalize our bands and activities. Thanks for everyone's support!!"
