10/28/2011 Buttahatchee River Fall Fest 2011 ( October 29th )

leave a comment »

HAMILTON – Our festival has grown tremendously over the past few years and the Hamilton Area Chamber of Commerce would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made Buttahatchee River Fall Fest 2010 possible, and to tell you about some of the changes for Buttahatchee River Fall Fest 2011.

The arts & crafts show is sponsored by the Northwest Alabama Arts Council. National Heritage Award Winner and Hamilton potter Jerry Brown will headline the event, along with Linda Lindale, Richie Stone, Jimmy Armstrong, Missy Miles, and many other artists and craftspeople. All proceeds from the arts & crafts show go to art education programs sponsored by the Northwest Alabama Arts Council.

This is our fourth year for a tractor show, in which we plan to showcase antique tractors and farm equipment. For entertainment this year, we’re featuring some great local talent from our area. We’ll have a centralized food court area near the stage area. After a tremendously successful debut at the 2010 BRFF, we’re expanding the Echota Indian historical display area.

On Friday, October 28, at 5:30 P.M., the city streets will be blocked off, and vendors will be allowed to set up between 5:30 and 7:30 P.M. Set up time will resume on Saturday morning, October 29, at 6:00 A.M. All vendors must sign in at the Chamber booth located at the intersection of 1st Ave. SW and 1st St. SW (southwest corner of the court square) to receive booth assignments and a certificate of participation. All booth set ups must be completed and personal vehicles moved out of the designated vendor areas no later than 8:00 A.M. The Buttahatchee River Fall Fest will officially begin at 9:00 A.M.

We look forward to seeing you and 10,000 of your closest friends in Beautiful Downtown Hamilton, Alabama for the Seventh Annual Buttahatchee River Fall Fest 2011!

10/20/2011 Rick and Bubba’s Turkey Toss coming to Decatur November 16

leave a comment »

The Public Selects Decatur to Host Rick and Bubba’s Annual Turkey Toss

Decatur, Ala. – The voting is in and the Academy Sport + Outdoors located in Decatur has been chosen to host the 2011 Rick and Bubba Turkey Toss. The annual competition serves as a fundraiser for a local charity while determining who can throw a frozen turkey the farthest where $5K in Academy Sport + Outdoors gift cards are up for grabs. The ninth annual event is set for Wednesday, November 16 and along with hurling turkeys, the nationally syndicated radio hosts of the Rick and Bubba Show will entertain the crowd from 6 to 10 a.m. in the parking lot of Academy Sports + Outdoors.

One by one, contestants line up to see who can throw the frozen turkey the greatest distance. The contest is set to begin at 6 a.m. and end at 9:30 a.m. While the wildly popular contest determines who can throw the farthest, it also raises money and food for a local charity. Those interested in participating must donate a non-perishable food item or cash. Neighborhood Christian Center of Alabama will be on hand to accept donations.

The 2010 event took place in Montgomery where the winner in the male division threw a distance of 121 feet with the female winner taking honors at 76 feet. Divisions include men’s, women’s, military, kids (12 and under), and high heels (women only). Prizes, totaling $5K in Academy Sport + Outdoors gift cards, will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places in each division.

From 6 to 10 a.m., Rick and Bubba will broadcast live from the parking lot of Academy Sport + Outdoors, located at 1205 Wimberly Drive SW, providing a play by play action of the competition to their listeners. A variety of vendors will also be on hand and Academy Sport + Outdoors will open its doors at 6 a.m.

The public selected the winning location, by voting online on the Rick and Bubba website in early October. Other cities up for the honors included Montgomery, Gadsden, Birmingham, and Prattville. Rick & Bubba are heard by over 3.5 million listeners every day on 60+ radio stations across the United States. For more information, visit http://www.RickandBubba.com.
