BOAZ, Ala. – Snead State Community College will be the host site of opening ceremonies for the 59th annual Boaz Harvest Festival on Thursday, Oct. 5, beginning at 6 p.m.

Following a doubleheader at Emmett Plunkett Field between the Parsons Baseball team and Gadsden State, officials of the College, Boaz Area Chamber of Commerce and City of Boaz will hit the diamond to kick off a weekend of festival fun.

“The Boaz Harvest Festival is one of the premier events for our community, and Snead State Community College is proud to host the opening ceremonies this year on our newly lighted baseball field,” said Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore. “We are so fortunate to be a part of this great community, and we are always honored to host our friends and neighbors on our campus. We are anticipating the best Harvest Festival ever, and we look forward to seeing everyone here.”

Live entertainment will include performances by the Snead State Street Singers, Snead State Jazz Band, Snead State Cheerleaders, Boaz High School Marching Band, Boaz High School Cheerleaders, Sand Mountain Cheer, All That Jazz Dance Studio, and Dance Without Limits.

In addition, members of the Boaz VFW will present the American Flag, and linemen of Marshall-DeKalb Electric Cooperative will conduct a special, patriotic presentation.

A variety of food trucks will be on hand for the event, and a bouncy house will be on site for children to play.

Before the opening ceremony, the public is encouraged to attend the doubleheader matchup between Snead State Baseball and Gadsden State. First pitch is at 2:30 p.m. Admission is free thanks to Howard Bentley Buick GMC in Albertville.
