Beulah Centennial plans falling into place
Last week the Beulah Centennial Committee met to discuss further planning for next year’s big party in August.
One major topic included the centennial book, which was coming together. The book committee encouraged families and businesses to get their biographies in as soon as possible, as the final date for accepting submissions was approaching quickly.
On the entertainment side of things, that committee was in the process of booking approximately 18 musical acts for music starting Thursday night and continuing both Friday and Saturday from noon until midnight. Music is planned for two stages on Main Street, as well as the Grandview Steakhouse.
That committee is also planning to have inflatables at two locations - near the waterpark on Friday and at Riverside Park on Saturday to coincide with the catered picnic.
Other plans the centennial committee has are to bring vendors downtown and host a trade show at the Beulah Civic Center. The trade show would potentially include booths like a blacksmith, coal crafts, leather work and chainsaw carver.
The parade is planned, although the route could potentially change from the usual Main Street/Central Avenue route. Instead, the Centennial Parade could possibly end up heading past Knife River Care Center and the northern residential area, although no official action was taken to set the route.
