Decorate a table at band festival

May 21, 2004

Tables are still available for the picnic Saturday night at the Great American Brass Band Festival June 11-13 on the lawn at Centre College.

An American Celebration is this year's festival theme and a judging category in the picnic table contest. Pat Liebschutz, picnic chairman, said tables should depict a favorite American tradition; the choice is up to the table guests.

Others categories are:

* The Sousa Award is the "Best of Show" for the table that stands out above all others.

* Brass Band Festival award is for the table that best reflects the spirit of the Great American Brass Band Festival.

* Off Centre is for the table display that uses the most humor in decorations.

* Spielberg is for a table exhibiting the most creativity and novel idea.

* Judge's Pick is for two tables that do not fall in any other category, but have a good theme. The judges will select tables for a prize and designate special awards for the table. The tables can be most novel, whimsical, colorful, Kentucky theme, literary or presidential.


The tables that seat eight people are available on the upper and lower levels on the Centre College campus between Main and Walnut streets. The picnic begins at 5 p.m. and judging will be 6 p.m. Prizes will be given to winners.

Anyone interested in reserving a table may call Liebschutz at (859) 236-7000.
