One of Easy County's most memorable annual events is revving its engines and about to burn rubber. Bethel Island's Chamber of Commerce and virtually every Island business one can think of is gearing up to entertain the community at the 21st Annual '50s Bash Friday through Sunday, July 18-20.
Chamber president Rich Marshall has invited everyone who might be suffering from CornFest withdrawal symptoms to come out to Bethel Island where '50s Bash admission is absolutely free and the Island is alive with music, fun, drinks, food of all kinds, catfish races, car, boat, motorcycle and golf cart shows, vendors and more.
Marshall was especially impressed with last year's Mexican dressage group. I call them dancing horses, Marshall said. It's amazing what they taught those horses to do, and we're bringing them back again this year.
The fun begins this Friday, when bands crank the amps in the parking lot outside GR Marshall's Island Bistro. Friday evening will also feature a sock-hop, plus hula hoop, twist and jitterbug contests.
The Bash is a blast from the past, said Geri Marshall, and everyone's family is invited to relive the '50s or just see what a lot of it was like.
