City Celebrates 3rd Annual Stars & Stripes Jubilee

June 18, 2005 – Posted at 9:14 p.m. CDT

TYRONZA, AR -- Folks in Tyronza were kicking up their heels over the weekend in the third annual Stars and Stripes Jubilee.

Folks there enjoyed a parade, barbeque cooking and even a horseshoe contest.

“Everybody up here has a good time, has fun,” said Patrick Green who competed in the BBQ Competition.

And there was plenty to do and it was all designed to bring together friends and neighbors.

“Just to get the community out for a good time. We've got something for all ages...it's a way for the neighbors to get out to have time to talk, to mingle,” said Tyronza Mayor Marion Bearden.

Plenty of music, food and fun for everyone, and it started as a little idea from the mayor that turned into a big project.

“I just wanted some way to get people out and let them know that this town was their town, and it was the only way I knew of to bring them out and bring them together,” said Bearden.

“The community, the support we get is just wonderful. We couldn't do the things we do and feel as well about the things we do without the support of the community, they're wonderful,” said Loretta McEntire.

Bearden said, “We're having a lot of people who weren't here before and it's getting bigger and better every year, and that's what we expect to continue.”
