Jonesboro Chamber Sets 'Paint the Town Red' Week Activities

AUGUST 25, 2006 - Posted at 3:47 p.m. CDT

 

JONESBORO, AR - The ASU Committee of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce announced plans this afternoon for the annual 'Paint the Town Red' week activities, centered around Arkansas State's home football opener against Army on September 2.

Local businesses are encouraged to decorate the interiors and exteriors of their business to show support for ASU.  A decorating contest will be judged on the afternoon of Thursday, August 31.  The Spirit Award will be awarded to the business that best demonstrates their Indian Spirit.

Also this year, a traveling trophy will be awarded for the best window display among downtown merchants.

The weeklong celebration begins on Monday at 10 a.m. with a balloon launch from Indian Stadium.  Third graders from four Jonesboro area elementary schools will participate in the event, which will also feature Coach Steve Roberts and several Indian football players, the ASU Cheerleaders and Red.

The Big Great A-State Tailgate is set for Friday (9/1) from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in downtown Jonesboro.  Several Jonesboro radio stations will broadcast live from the event, which will also feature food concessions, contests, face painting and live entertainment, including the Marching Indian Band.  The ASU cheerleaders and A-Team will also perform, and members of the Indian football team will also be on hand to meet fans and sign autographs.

More information is available by contacting the Chamber at 932-6691.
