Downtown Jubilee is Saturday

Staff Writer

Grenada’s biggest fall festival gets underway tomorrow as the city welcomes the 13th Annual Downtown Jubilee.

Virginia Fulton, co-chairman, said more than 90 vendor slots have been filled for the event, which is shaping up to be one of the biggest ever for Grenada.

“We have everything under the sun this year,” Fulton said. “Food, good music, designer clothes, we have it all.”

The Jubilee is set to start at 9 a.m., and after this week’s gloomy and rainy weather from remnants of Tropical Storm Irma, 80 degree temperatures are expected to return.

Artists will display their work, along with craftsmen who will bring woven material,  jewelry and outdoor furniture.

Face painting, a dunking booth and bungee jumping will return this year for the kids, along with new additions, such as kiddie cars and train rides.
“We have a lot for the kids,” Fulton said. “In the kiddie train rides, we have four cars that will take children for a ride around the Square.”

Day-long entertainment will also be an attraction and features some of the areas most popular gospel and country music and also a performance by Visions show choir.
