MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!
On Saturday, July 3, 2021, Castor will host its first annual Freedom Fest.
The Pine Beetle Festival has partnered with the Town of Castor to bring you some SUMMER FUN!
There will be food, free Bingo, a cake walk, corn hole, sno cones, a Treasure Hunt, a spectacular fireworks display, a grand finale provided by Alvie Myers, and more.
Local churches will have food booths to raise money to help their kids and youth with camp expenses. Only local churches are allowed to sell food. Each church will sell one thing. There will be no other vendors allowed to set up. We just want this to be a time of fun and fellowship.
At 5:00 p.m., join us at the pavilion for FREE BINGO. Bingo will be free because we want everyone to support our churches and kids with food purchases. Bingo prizes have been donated by local businesses and individuals. If you would like to donate prizes for Bingo, please drop them off to Mayor Pickett at the Castor City Hall.
We will host a Treasure Hunt with a prize in excess of $300.00.
Clues will be posted beginning Monday, June 28th and be posted daily until Friday, July 2nd. They will be posted daily at City Hall by 9:00 am, and on Bienville Parish Journal website and Facebook page soon thereafter. If no one finds the treasure one last clue will be posted early Saturday am. If the treasure is not found it will be added to the 2021 Pine Beetle Festival Treasure Hunt amount.
The celebration will end with the best fireworks show around. We will have a pyrotechnic firework show that can be seen all over the town. It will begin when it gets dark enough to be seen really well, probably around 9:00 pm give or take a few minutes. You will be allowed to sit on the tracks, downtown, at the community center, or wherever you think you can see best. Fireworks will be launched from the Castor Fire Station.
***Masks are NOT required to attend any of these activities but if you feel better wearing one please do so.
BRING YOUR CHAIRS AND LET’S HAVE SOME FUN!!
**NO ALCOHOL WILL BE ALLOWED**
