08/23/2014 – 20 Years of Smokin’ It Up in Decatur

leave a comment »

logoDecatur, Ala. – Along the Tennessee River in Decatur, the aroma of barbeque fills the air the in September. Celebrating its 20th year in 2014, Riverfest brings together pitmasters from across the country who smoke it out as festivalgoers enjoy live music, friendly barbeque competition, and fun and games. Headliners for this year’s event set for September 19-20, 2014, are country music star Craig Campbell and Southern rock band Blackberry Smoke.

Hosted by the Decatur Jaycees, Riverfest is recognized by the State of Alabama as an official State Barbeque Championship competition and is sanctioned by, and conducted under, the rules of the Kansas City Barbeque Society. Competing for prize money and trophies totaling $20,000, the BBQ cook-off is open to professional and amateur teams, and children between the ages of 8 and 18 years old are invited to test their ribeye steak barbequing skills in the Kids Q.

Live music fires up Friday evening. Headliner Craig Campbell (www.craigcampbell.tv) is scheduled to take the stage at 9:30 p.m. Nominated for two American Country Awards, Campbell reached the top of the country music charts with several of his songs, including “Outta My Head,” “Family Man,” and “Keep Them Kisses Comin.” The music continues Saturday afternoon and includes performances by The Wheelers (www.reverbnation.com/thewheelersband), Drake White (www.drakewhite.com) and rising stars Blackberry Smoke (www.blackberrysmoke.com). Playing up to 250 dates each year, this Southern Rock quintet band has toured with the Marshall Tucker Band, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynryd and George Jones. The band was asked to play for Jones on his 80th birthday, not long after the country legend turned in a guest appearance on the band’s sophomore album.

Along with the BBQ cook-off and music, there are food vendors offering barbeque and other traditional festival food and a free children’s area. Weekend passes are $30 per person and includes admission for both days.

For more information, visit http://www.decaturjaycees.com/riverfest-2012/vip-area-sports-zone.

08/19/2014 – Fyffe’s Tribute to Flying Objects Set for August 23, 2014

leave a comment »

fyffeufodaysFort Payne, Ala. – In 1989, numerous sightings of unidentified flying objects throughout Fyffe led the small community to be known as the UFO Capital of the World, and later to be recognized by the state as the UFO Capital of Alabama. As a tribute, the community comes together to host the Fyffe UFO Day Festival. Now in its tenth year, the Fyffe UFO Day Festival is an unforgettable family outing celebration where the only flying objects spotted over Sand Mountain are colorful hot-air balloons.

Set for August 23, 2014, the UFO Day Festival offers plenty of colorful, giant balloons, arts and crafts, games for children, a 5k run, an antique car and tractor show, an assortment of food vendors, and live music throughout the day. Slated to perform are The Sharp’s Quartet, The Southern Mountain Band, Still Kickin’, Jacob Stiefel and the Truth, B-Sharp Band, Smokin’ Guns, The Big Band and others. Gates open at 9 a.m. but festivalgoers are encouraged to arrive around 6 a.m. to watch hot air balloons launch and float away.

New for this year is the Fyffe UFO Day 5K. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with the race getting underway at 8 a.m. Registration is available online at racesonline.com. Cost is $25 in advance or $30 day of race. Proceeds will go toward a practice facility for the Fyffe cheerleaders.

Hot-air balloon rides across the Sand Mountain area are available, weather permitting, by advance reservation only. For more information, visit www.ballooningal.com or call 256.461.8612 or send an email to rides@ballooningal.com.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Fyffe Town Park on Graves Street. All activities are held at the Fyffe Town Park on Graves Street unless noted otherwise. Parking and admission is free. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic blankets.

For more information on UFO Day Festival, call DeKalb Tourism at 888.805.4740 or visit www.DiscoverLookoutMountain.com.

08/19/2014 – World War II Ship to Visit Decatur, Alabama – Sept. 4 – 9, 2014

leave a comment »

The USS LST 325 Ship Museum to be open for tours September 4-9 at Ingalls Harbor.

Decatur, Ala. (Sept. 4 – 9, 2014) – A 328 feet long piece of American history will be docked at Ingalls Harbor in Decatur, Alabama and will be available for public tours. The USS LST 325 is a World War II vessel that was part of the D-Day Invasion at Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944. This ship is one of the last of her kind and is the only working LST in the United States. The ship is now operated as a floating museum that sails to inland river cities each year as part of its mission statement to educate the public. By giving tours, the crew will educate everyone, young and old, as to the role these ships have played in our wars and honor those who built, sailed and served on these ships.

The USS LST 325 will arrive in Decatur on Wednesday, September 3 and will open for tours on Thursday, September 4 through Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Tours will take place from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6-17 and free for children ages 5 and under. A $20 family pass is also available for 2 adults and 2 minor children. Tours last approximately an hour. Group tour prices are also available and must be scheduled in advance through the Decatur Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Ten or more adults in a group will qualify for a rate of $8 per person. A rate of $3 per student will be given to groups of ten or more minors. (For every 10 students, 1 adult is admitted free.) For more information about the ship or to schedule group tours contact the Decatur Morgan County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 256-350-2028 or 800-524-6181.

Carrying 20 Sherman tanks in their giant holds, the LST (Landing Ship Tank) was developed during World War II to land vehicles and personnel directly onto enemy shores. On the main deck they could also carry 30-40 trucks, tons of fuels, ammunition or supplies and soldiers.

The USS LST 325 participated in the invasion and occupation of Sicily on July 10, 1943 (Operation HUSKY); Salerno, September 3, 1943; and the Normandy Invasion on June 6, 1944 under the command of Captain Clifford E. Mosier. Between June 1944 and April 1945, the LST 325 made 44 trips between England and France to aid in the delivery of supplies to Omaha, Utah, Gold, Juno and the City of Rouen on the Seine River, earning 2 Battle Stars for her effort.

The use of LST’s continued through the Korean and Vietnam War due to the ship’s ability to navigate shallow waters. Through the years, the USS LST 325 has had a fascinating record of service and in 2000, she was acquired by the USS LST 325 Ship Memorial, Inc. through an act of Congress.

The National LST Association has over 5,000 members and the USS LST Ship Memorial Inc. has 2,000 members whose goal is to be able to sail the ship under its own power—up the inland rivers and along the coasts, allowing all to set foot on her decks and to provide a learning experience. The mission is to educate everyone about the role the LST played to keep America free and provide an opportunity for veterans to show their family and friends the ships on which they served. The ship also helps to preserve the memory of the men and women who built them and the men who served and died on them.

To learn more about the USS LST 325’s history, visit www.lstmemorial.org.

For more information on the upcoming visit, call Melinda Dunn of the Decatur-Morgan County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 256.350.2028.
