I can't believe how quickly time is flying! It's almost time for the 3rd annual Elevate concert at the Martinsville Fairgrounds. It is going to be another not-to-be-missed event, with Kutless, For King and Country, and Josh Wilson--3 top bands in the field of Christian contemporary music. The concert will begin at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, with gates opening at 4:00. There will even be free bounce houses for the kids all evening while the concert is going on.
A friend and I spent most of Monday hanging posters in gas stations, coffee shops, restaurants--anywhere people congregate in towns in Illinois within 50 miles of Martinsville to get the word out about the concert. And then I hung several in Terre Haute yesterday.
We also put up Martinsville Fair posters. The Fair begins the day after Elevate with gospel music on Sunday night. The carnival doesn't arrive till Tuesday, but it is well worth the wait. This carnival has state fair quality rides. Because the goal of the fair is to provide family entertainment, the Fair Board has made it possible for everyone to ride the rides all evening with a $5 admission to the fairgrounds. How wonderful for families on a tight budget! Ride all evening for only $5!
Don't miss this fun-packed week, July 7-14, at the Martinsville Fairgrounds!
