The state almost messed up the event by not issuing a liquor license to anything like this held in a public park. So the Sons of the American Legion developed a different plan. It was going to be moved to the American Legion with some nearby streets shut down and the parade route being reversed.

            Thanks to the pandemic not being so bad now, the liquor license to have the June Jamboree in the park has been released and things will go on there as planned.

            It is scheduled for Friday June 18 and the following night. Friday it begins at 5 pm with food and beer stands. At 6 pm the carnival games and rides will open. Live music by Shotgun Creek goes from 8 pm until 12 pm.

            On Saturday, the parade starts at the Legion and goes to the park at 5 pm. To be part of it, call Tim Hoerchler, 588-4571. The food, beer, rides and games are at the same times Saturday as they are Friday. The music will be by a group called Midnight.  

There was a time recently when it looked like the New Baden June Jamboree would not be held in the local park like usual. That has changed and it will now be there at its traditional location this year.
