A slice of summertime fun


STOCKDALE -- It’s time to bring out the cowboy boots, listen to some live music, and get ready to rodeo at the 61st annual Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee Thursday through Saturday, June 16-18, at the Stockdale City Park.

There will be a number of events that will take place, including arts and crafts, lawnmower races, rodeo performances, and live music.

“We keep coming up with new events to increase attendance” said Jana Poth, vice president of the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce, which helps sponsor the event.

The jubilee will kick off on Thursday with a carnival armband night.

Events on Friday include the rodeo starting at 8 p.m. Featured at the rodeo will be mutton busting and team roping. There will also be a homegrown-melon auction.

Following the rodeo and auction will be a live performance, which starts at 8:30 p.m. with the “Randy Rogers Band.” The band has become a local draw since the release of its newest compact disc, “Rollercoaster.”

Kevin Fowler, a rising star of country music, will also be playing Friday night.

Saturday is a day for the entire family to come out and enjoy a variety of fun activities.

The fun will begin with a parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday which will be announced by local residents Lynette Best-Crisp and Jim Helmke. A camera crew will be filming the parade and other events throughout the day for a future “Texas Country Reporter” episode, which will feature the duo.

From 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., there will be food booths, arts and crafts, and lawnmower races. There will also be an appearance by the Texas Oklahoma Watermelon Queen Lacy Jones.

Local band “The Big Outfit” will be performing in the park from 12:30-3:30 p.m., and the Stockdale Hermann Dancers are scheduled to perform at 1:30 p.m.

The rodeo will kick off at 8 p.m. and the jubilee committee will receive an award for having one of the “Best Small Town Rodeos.”

After the rodeo, the crowd will be entertained with live music from Jason Boland and Roger Creager from 9:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Tickets to the rodeo and concert are $20 at the door.

“In addition to supporting the community, it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Poth said.

Money raised will be used for scholarships, mini-grants that community and school organizations can apply for through the chamber and put back in the fund for future festivals. Money will also be donated to the volunteer fire department and emergency services district.
