Fourth of July Celebration

Thank You Crescent Hill!

After breaking records on the Fourth of July with beautiful weather, amazing crowds, wonderful fireworks and exhausted vendor supplies, and a steady-paced, relaxing time on July 5, all that is left to do at this point is to say thank you to those who made the Crescent Hill Old Fashioned Fourth of July Celebration possible. 

Thank you to:

  • Hundreds of volunteers who supported this event, both by giving time working in the booths and behind the scenes, as well as those who have been working for months to plan the celebration. Our volunteers were led by Fourth of July co-chairs Kathy Creech and Greg Smith. Jerry Fielden also played a crucial role in ensuring the success of the event, managing the permits process, setting up booths, and coordinating the Crescent Hill Food Booth.
  • Our Sponsors - the celebration would not have been successful without financial support from three long-time sponsors of the Fourth of July event -- please thank them when you see them:
  • Artists who made the Art Fair a success, and to Joyce Cossavella and Diana Gautier for providing artist hospitality.
  • Food vendors, especially our partners on The Avenue, the Frankfort Avenue Business Association, who staffed the beer booth.
  • The Peterson-Dumesnil House Foundation and Jefferson County Public Schools for allowing us to use their historic grounds to hold the event.
  • Children's Area vendors who provided a great getaway opportunity for families with young children, and Cynthia Thomas who coordinated the children's area and the field games
  • Kathy King and family who hosted the Cake Wheel and donors who provided cakes.
  • Musicians who kept our toes tapping during the event:
    • The Rascals of Ragtime
    • BlueZenGrass
    • Bomar and Ritter
    • M-V-P
    • Free Range Soul Band
    • Brad Mann
    • Bridge 19
    • Barefoot Best Friends
    • The Potluck Ramblers
    • The Bluegrass Blues Brothers Tribute Show
    • Kentucky Homefront with Alan Rhody and Dem Reggae Bon
  • Ellen Diebold for her work with the one-of-a-kind Crescent Hill Pet Show
  • Barbara McGee for creating and staffing the Crescent Hill History Display
  • Judy Sanders and Mark Gaff for coordinating the membership booth and associated hospitality services.
  • Melissa Mershon, Janine Linder and Barry Creech - if you heard about the event, it was probably due to their efforts.
  • The Ohio Valley Native American Warrior Society for their opening ceremonies and the Crescent Hill Tai Chi for their demonstrations.
