Stockdale News: New events set for Jubilee
The last regular meeting of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce was held on March 25 with discussions centering around the upcoming Watermelon Jubilee.
The board finalized plans for the kickoff of the 69th annual festival Thursday, June 13. In addition to Watermelon Rumble III, the third installment of Live TWA Professional Wrestling at the Jubilee, the main stage will feature a concert by “The Hillbilly Jug Band” from 9 p.m. to midnight. Tickets for Thursday night’s festivities are just $5 and can be purchased at the gate or online at www.ticketweb.com. For the duration of Jubilee weekend, children 10 and younger get in free!
The board also finalized plans for two new events to the Jubilee this year -- a prize drawing and the first ever Jubilee golf tournament.
The Jubilee golf tournament will be held on Saturday, June 1, at the Golf Club of Seguin. Registration will begin at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start scheduled for 8 a.m. The entry fee of $75 per golfer or $300 per team includes golf cart, greens fees, and refreshments after the tournament’s conclusion. Mulligans will be sold. Golfers age 65 or older will be allowed to play from senior tees. Save by registering early before Thursday, May 30 ($280 per team). For information or questions regarding players or teams, call Jesse Vela at 830-391-4335 or Donald Bennett at 830-391-2467. Entry forms are available on our website at www.stockdaletx.org and also at the Brahma Bullpen in Stockdale.
The date of this year’s Former Queens Tea has been changed to Sunday, June 2, and will be held in the Stockdale High School cafeteria from 2-4 p.m. The outgoing Jubilee and rodeo courts will present a slideshow of memories from this past year, and it is also a great opportunity to meet the candidates for this year’s Jubilee and rodeo courts! If you are a former Jubilee or rodeo queen (or both), please make plans to attend this fun event!
Watermelon Crawl, more
This year’s Jubilee will feature the fifth annual Watermelon Crawl 5K race and Kids Crawl Fun Run on Saturday, June 15, and registration is now under way. The Watermelon Crawl will begin at 8 a.m., followed by the Kids Crawl at 9 a.m. Registration forms can be picked up at Brahma Bullpen in Stockdale or downloaded from our website at www.stockdaletx.org. Participants may also register online at http://bit.ly/12duNec.
Early registration is $20 for the Watermelon Crawl and $10 for the Kids Crawl. All participants will receive a T-shirt, and awards will be given to the winner in each age division of the Watermelon Crawl and to all children participating in the Kids Crawl.
Don’t forget about the Watermelon Jubilee parade on Saturday, June 15! The parade will begin at 10 a.m., with judging at 8 a.m., and anyone interested in participating in the parade can download an application from our website or pick one up at City Hall in Stockdale.
As a reminder, if you are interested in having a food, craft, or information booth on the grounds during Jubilee weekend, visit our website for entry forms and rules. Prospective vendors may also email firstname.lastname@example.org for information packets and more information.
